LET ME TELL YOU WHAT IT’S REALLY LIKE is a frank conversation on living with mental illness (in general) and bipolar disorder (in particular), both for the person diagnosed and those in his or her life. Based on a series of interviews, the intention of the work is to honestly present a broad range of experiences for those who are living with an emotional and mental disability. We hope it will lead to greater understanding for everyone who has to deal with all forms of this illness and strengthen the support of a compassionate community.
