A Conversation with the Bipolar General: Part 2 & 3

Episode Summary Heading link

Zoom screen grab of General Gregg Martin and Dr. Alex Leow

UIC professor of psychiatry, Dr. Alex Leow, joins for the second part of our 3-part conversation with Major General Gregg Martin. They discuss how common concepts in bipolar disorder manifest in day-to-day life, providing an important glimpse into the thought processes and perceptions of someone living with a bipolar brain.

In the final part of our series, we return to the conversation between Dr. Leow and General Martin to hear one last incredible story, and examine how the greater research community can translate the information gained through personal stories into better interventions, medical practice and public policy.

DISCLAIMER: This episode includes discussions of mental illness, delusions and psychotic events. Please listen with care.
