Hiding Behind the Pulpit
I am a 53 year old disabled UMC pastor diagnosed in 1994 with Bipolar Disorder. I have worked for 25 years in manufacturing management, and for the past 9 years was a full-time UMC pastor. The content of my blog is aimed at the mentally-ill pastor, with the focus on how to function in a daily church environment. It is also designed to specifically target the working class, people who are in the lower to middle income bracket. These people make up over 99% of the MI population, yet often are left to fend for themselves

This resource, formerly the blog Bipolar Mom Life, was transformed in 2013, when Jennifer Marshall launched the concept for "This Is My Brave", a mental health storytelling show, on Kickstarter. After successfully being funded they formed a nonprofit organization with a mission to end the stigma surrounding mental illness through creative personal storytelling.
Her site still features a regularly updated blog as well as additional information about the "This Is My Brave" project and booking information for speaking engagements.

John McManamy's Share Posts
John is not only known for his writing on bipolar spectrum disorders research, he's received high honours for it. This year he was awarded a Mogens Schou Award for Public Service, joining an exclusive and prestigious list of honourees that include professor of psychiatry/author/bipolar overachiever Kay Redfield Jamison, family psychotherapy researcher David J. Miklowitz, and the Stanleys of the Stanley Foundation (a major research funding source). John does things a bit differently online. Although he keeps a blog it's mostly relegated to personal stories and recipes while his most astute, well-researched writing is delivered in McManamy's Depression and Bipolar Weekly, a subscription-based email newsletter. Eventually its articles become publicly archived at his static web site McMan's Depression and Bipolar Web. He also wrote a great book that distilled a lot of that knowledge, Living Well With Depression and Bipolar Disorder. The blog keeps everyone current what he's working on.
