A true hero in the mental health community, we say goodbye to the talented academy award winning actress, Patty Duke. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder, she has openly discussed and written about her struggles with depression and mania. Patty Duke was one of the first celebrities I read about upon my diagnosis years ago. Please let’s all take a moment, also in lieu of World Bipolar Day (March 30th), & send some thoughts to her loved ones & cherish her memory.
