An incredible project created by McLean Hospital called Deconstructing Stigma strives to showcase what mental illness looks like from all walks of life. One of their participants, Alan Scherer, reached out to us for an interview in order to spread awareness about this project and his personal struggles with Bipolar Disorder. Our interview is about his personal beliefs around mental illness, medication, relationships, how men are treated in households mostly controlled by women in trauma - the affects on the young men trying to define themselves.
