It's Pride Month and April Kelley plans to use the newly launched Twitter Spaces capability to enable ongoing conversations around bipolar disorder.

HAPPY PRIDE MONTH… whether you’re part of the community or an ally – welcome! If you know me, you’ll know I’m a Mighty Bi-Bi… Bipolar and bisexual. Oh, the joys! Oh, the stigma!

We recently conducted an interactive poll using Twitter and you guys wanted to talk and tackle the joint stigma we face living with a mental illness as well as being a part of the LGBTQ+ community. That my friends is exactly what we’ll be doing this month using Twitter Spaces.

As always, I won’t have all the answers, but together we’ll do what we’re best at… bringing comfort, sharing awareness and pooling resources.

I’m not doing this on my own though, I want to hear from you. Be a part of the conversation. Share your stories, your strength and your concerns for the future. On 24th of June we will begin this session at 1pm use this link to get your reminder. Follow Bipolar UK on Twitter for details on how you can join in the dialogue.

Maybe, just maybe on this month we’ll eradicate some of the stigma ourselves.

 

All my love,
