A fantastic blog by the personable and candid Liz Spikol. She posts frequently on bipolar news items culled from the mainstream media (and reader contributions) with a special interest in prison reform and related mental health legal issues. A career journalist, she's got an instinctive affinity for the blog medium. Maybe most importantly, her personal experience with bipolar provides a perspective some blogs lack. The Trouble with Spikol takes a pragmatic view of mental health issues, looking at consumer activism as well as medical advances and humanizing it all. Although the news items are sometimes grim, Liz infuses her blog with lightness, warmth and humour.
