Kitt O’Malley, author of “Balancing Act: Writing Through a Bipolar Life,” is a mental health advocate, public speaker, and former psychotherapist who lives with bipolar disorder. Her personal experience and clinical background inform her advocacy and enable her to help herself and guide others toward mental health recovery.
Over the years, Kitt has struggled with bipolar, experiencing depression so deep that it was a living hell and mania so severe that she was psychotic.
However, there is help. Psychotherapy, medication, and coping skills have enabled her to live a full life.
Acceptance has been key to her mental health recovery. Acceptance is essentially a spiritual experience.
To accept yourself is to love yourself. There is hope.
You are enough.
