a little about The bipolar barbie:
People ask me why I chose the name Bipolar Barbie and it all started one Sunday afternoon. My housemate asked me why I have so many clothes and I replied “because I have so many different personalities, they each need their own wardrobe”
Then it dawned on me.
I am just like a naked barbie doll, waiting to see what outfit I will be dressed in each day, dressed by another hand. Barbie has her outfits like nurse barbie, horse riding barbie, dancing barbie and everything in between.
I am just like Barbie but in the mental ill world!
I am committed to changing the face of Mental Health. I aim to abolish the stigma surrounding Mental Health, leading by example, sharing my journey with Mental Illness. I hope to make others feel less alone as they experience my creative take on living with Mental Illness. I hope to inspire change and encourage others to seek help and speak up.
