Can Mental Patients Also Be Experts?

Not Crazy

29-09-2020 • 53 mins

Who do you think understands more about bipolar disorder: a psychiatrist or a patient with the illness? In this Not Crazy podcast, we discuss whether a patient can be considered a mental health expert without all the credentials after their name. Today we invite writer and bipolar advocate Natasha Tracy -- who also has bipolar disorder -- to the show to give her opinion.

Would you seek advice from a patient? Join us for an in-depth discussion on mental health patients as experts.
