Two Mental Health Videos You Need to See

Posted May 18th, 2011 by

Did you know that May is Mental Health Awareness Month?

To help put a face on mental health conditions, which affect one in four American adults, we wanted to share two amazing patient stories. They both created heartfelt videos as part of our PatientsLikeMe “Express Yourself Video Contest,” and we’re proud of what a great job they did.

Check out each video to learn what it’s like to live with a mental health condition – including bipolar II disorder and major depression – and how connecting with other patients can help.
