Teaching Mental Illness

I am ridiculously open with my students about my mental health when I need to be.  If there is a student who is struggling emotionally and is diagnosed or is wondering if they should seek intervention, I will tell them that I have biploar disorder, that it’s really hard sometimes, but that there is also hope that it won’t “ruin” my life.  I think it’s good for them to know that you can have a mental health issue and still be a functioning member of society.
