Since it is Mental Health Awareness Month, I figured now would be a perfect time to share this with you:
Michael Angelakos is the singer, songwriter, and producer of a band called Passion Pit. Michael is also an individual who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and depression. He shares his experiences of the mental illness’ symptoms and his process through recovery.
On May 3, 2013, Michael was awarded the Beatrice Stern Media Award at the Erasing the Stigma Leadership Awards.

Erasing stigma is not only a one-person job. Each of us, together, can dismantle stigma’s grip on our society.
