Fans of Kay Redfield Jamison rejoice: here’s the vintage half-hour video An Unquiet Mind: Personal Reflections on Manic-Depressive Illness. A captivating speaker, she’s authored many papers and books on the subjects of bipolar, manic depression and recurrent depression. She is Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and is bipolar herself.

Newly unearthed is this eloquent lecture on her experiences with suicidal depression and psychotic mania, lithium, support, relapse and recovery. Produced in 2002 by the University of Virginia, now on YouTube via the Research Channel, vlogged by Channel N. Worth watching.
