A Long Journey... and Progress! Guest Blog: Paul Walken I was first diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder seven years ago after a failed suicide attempt. I came to realize that I have always struggled with Bipolar Disorder even before my diagnosis. After a very trying process of seeing many doctors and taking many different types of medication, MHGA played a major part of helping me get on the “right track” and a productive lifestyle.
Guest Blog: John Noss I was talking to a friend recently who was facing an involuntary hospital stay. As I saw it, most of the trouble she was having was idealistic: she didn’t want to take the medication the doctors were offering, because it was for ‘schizophrenics, and psychotics.’
Guest blog: John Noss Ultimately what I’m belaboring here is that medical diagnoses are not everything—but they are something. My friend is easily one of the most sensitive and impressive persons whom I have ever had the privilege of knowing.
