The Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter speaks with Dr. Mike Friedman about how she experienced both manic episodes -- in which she seemed more elated, energized or grandiose -- and depressive episodes where she had no energy and was unable to do even basic tasks. These episodes often felt like they come out of nowhere, leaving her feeling trapped by a biological process over which she had no control.
The singer-songwriter has been a long-time mental health activist. Talking with Dr. Mike, she explained she is trying to make mental health "legible" to reduce the stigma of mental illness. We need to focus on understanding our mental health rather than shaming and judging ourselves so we can help ourselves cope and heal.
