"STIGMA Through the Eyes of a Bipolar Artist"
by David A. Feingold, Ed.D, LCSW
Stigma is a major contributing factor to the 25% to 60% of people with bipolar disorder who attempt suicide and to the 4% to 19% who succeed.
Bipolar stigma negatively affects not only the daily life of individuals with bipolar disorder but their families who love and care about them.
The media perpetuates misinformation and generalizations
about bipolar disorder, leading to stigma and self-stigma.
We can bring society's own psychiatric diagnosis of "bipolar stigmatization" to a humanistic end.
