Last August, we interviewed editor of the Philadelphia Weekly and mental health campaigner Liz Spikol. Part of her work as a journalist and campaigner involves her blog The Trouble with Spikol, which includes regular video updates conveying her whimsical view of the world of journalism.
Recently, she’s just begun a video series tackling current issues in mental health, drawing both from her own experience and her knowledge of psychiatric treatment and the mental health system.
The first is both frank and witty (the reference to Touched with Fire, Kay Redfield Jamison’s book on the link between creativity and manic depression made me laugh out loud) and hopefully will be the first of many to come.
