11. What resources do you recommend and why? (Books, documentaries, websites etc … anything at all.)
I’ve reviewed all of the books and documentaries I’ve read and watched, the info and links are all on my blog pages (eyes aloft, kids).
These are a few of my favourite things:
Anything by Marya Hornbacher (memoir & novel)
Ditto Miriam Toews (biography & novels)
Too Bright to Hear too Loud to See – Juliann Garey (novel)
Marbles – Ellen Forney (graphic novel)
Boy Interrupted (trigger: suicide of teenager)
Madness Redefined: Creativity, Intelligence and the Dark Side of the Mind (incl Elyn Saks & Kay Redfield Jamison)
Stephen Fry: Secret Life of the Manic Depressive

My favourite song about bipolar is Krizz Kaliko’s Bipolar. I’m not sure how he came up with the name of the song, but what a stroke of genius.
