    This was a wonderful documentary about what the person diagnosed with Bipolar disorder goes through. I think many people do-not discriminate against someone who is willing to take the necessary steps to manage their Bipolar. However, the vast majority of those who definitely has some type of mental health challenge are unwilling to seek out help. They become more angry than they already are, defensive, and unreasonable. There is no way anyone should continue to take abuse from a person with untreated mental illness. They will drain the life right out of you.

    This documentary makes it appear that most people are getting help for their disorder and are discriminated against. I do-not find that to the the case. It’s impossible to interact with someone who is unwilling to admit they have a problem and seek help.
