  • I've been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder 1&2. It's a hell of a road to travel. We go from up to down, from down to up. And never come to a middle. Sometimes Manic, Down to Depression even the thought of Suicide and as well as actually Attempting it To completing it. Known as The Unknown Silent killer Within. Bipolar Disorder Does exist. But it goes undiagnosed for Years.

  • Try AMare GLOBEL it's a all natural mental wellness supplement company. Buy the AMare fundamental pack plus. You will feel great again. It will get rid of bi polar or any mental illnesses. It's backed by doctors psychologist and science. The other thing recommend is make sure your not deficit in vitamins or Celiac's disease. Which check by blood work your doctor can order. If your low in vitamins or have Celiac's disease it can cause some mental health issue s. Medication is the past. AMare GLOBEL is the future of mental wellness. That is what made a big difference in my mental health. Nothing compares

  • This is educational. Honestly I alway try to be understanding, but you can't be understanding unless someone is willing to explain or at least talk about it. So I am very appreciative of this video although it probably doesn't cover more than a scratch of all that is actually happening when a person struggles with a mental illness. Still I always felt that one of the reasons people struggle with such illnesses so much is because there seems to be a taboo surrounding the topic and nobody dares to sit down and simply talks about it. So I thank you for doing exactly that and I hope that more people will look at this clip and discover a new way of thinking and perceiving.

  • My son was diagnosed recently after years of depression and crazy, irresponsible,, out of character behaviour. It’s wonderful now to know why. He’s on medication but I’d say it’s ‘dulled’ his personality. This video was really useful but I wish they’d spoken about medication.

  • I totally understand the post album depression, I compose albums once every 2 months and I feel so empty if I don’t immediately get a new idea for the next album concept. But without songwriting as an outlet I think I’d be in a far far lower place....managing bipolar disorder is knowing when your in a certain side like mania, depression or dysphoria and learning what you need to accommodate yourself.

  • reminds me of Black Box tv show about the bipolar neurologist. it has a moment when the main character is in love with her mania due to being the most creative there, but her therapist asks something along the lines "do you want to be talented or normal?". Normal there was closer to being alive because manic episodes were life-threatening. it really stuck with me, that question. It's hard to choose life over the "art" you are capable of in mania stage, if you define yourself by that art. but that's sometimes what you have to do to get better.

  • Thank you for sharing. There’s nothing to be afraid of in accepting yourself..although, like you said it is a process. I also think it also helps to educate other people who are around you and important to you. We all tend to shy away from topics like this and other people are not aware. For the longest time, You get so confused as what you did to make them so mad at you or why one day they are good and the next they are depressed. I was so unaware and un compassionate about this and took it as a personal attack. I blamed myself that it was me, and I wasn’t good enough. It hurts a relationship but I never really understood it. After having to go through a relationship where all I felt lost on the other person’s emotion...I wish videos like this came out back then to inform me. You have to learn to understand that sometimes it is not because of you and it is a condition. This world is not black and white, it’s colorful with all kinds of variations. It is important for us to know and be more informed...not only for the person who has the condition..but for people like me, who have no clue in dealing with it. I realize now, that many people suffer from a lot of things we do not know. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. In the end, we are all human...this is all human, and we need to learn about it to accept ourselves and function.

  • O homem mais inteligente que passou pela terra falou, "não julgue as pessoas para não serem julgados na mesma medida", talvez muitos a julgaram nos momentos em que ela não estava bem, mas Deus sabe do fardo de cada um, e da dificuldade de cada um, e não podemos julgar ninguém exatamente por isso, por que podemos ser um dia julgados por Deus e ele irá falar pra nós, mas você queria pessoas perfeitas mesmo sendo tão imperfeito? Não julguemos a ninguém, por que seremos hipócritas em querer achar que somos perfeitos em um mundo tão imperfeito, espero que a Halsey encontre o caminho da paz e que Deus a guie no bom caminho e ajude ela a carregar o fardo e os desafios do dia-a-dia, e que ela saiba que todos somos imperfeitos e temos nosso fardo pra carregar, não tente ser perfeita por causa das pessoas.

  • Other people when someone gets diagnosed with a mental illness: oh, I'm sorry My family when I got diagnosed with a mental illness: you're a monster Halsey's music inspired me to be who I am, and it helps calm me in my uncontrollable state. I hope I could still be a light to people and they would stop seeing me as a monster, but rather, as the angel I wanted to be

    • @S C YOU'RE SO STRONG SWEETHEART! I'm sorry that you had to go through all that. But never forget that mental illness isn't something to be scared of or something to shy away from. It can happen to anyone. So please seek proper medical help. And confide in people who truly love you and whom you trust. Try to ignore people who talk bad about you. YOU MATTER, YOUR EXISTENCE MATTERS!✊ Forever sending love and prayers your way!❤️ MORE POWER TO YOU

    • I know how you feel. I haven't been diagnosed with anything but I have a old school macedonian family. Witnessed my parents going thru domestic violence and mother crying so much from it it was so sad to witness a helpless mother being hit on the head by her husband and here I was a little girl crying aswell. Trying to like heal her or stop the situation. Feeling helpless myself. And would have felt anxiety, been afraid all that. And as an adult now my mother just forgets all that. And we aren't close anymore. We live together yet she gives me silent treatment that lasts up to like 7 months. Even more. And through out everything in my life including this treatment I developed anxiety and have had panic attacks. And my sister said the worst thing in the entire world bascially a monster but even worse. She told my mum once that I can kill them in their sleep and they called the cops on me because I was so angry at my mum because the silent treatment was getting to me. Yet nobody in my family wanted to see my side. Or tell mum off. It's all swept under the rug. I'm bascially the scapegoat of the family. Anyway i wish I never heard my sister say that. Because I started to fear myself and get that thought in my mind like what if she's right. Even though I know she's not. It's that panic state , the fear. The trauma of it. Families cam do mkre harm than good sometimes :( keep believing in yourself. We know our selves best. Nobody knows us more. Like Billie eilish says in her song "If they knew what they said would fo straight to my head what would they say instead".

  • Thank you so much for this! I received my diagnosis when I was 25 and at the time there were no public figures speaking about it, and certainly no one else I knew. Hearing you speak about forgiving your manic self brought many emotions for me. I’m so grateful that young folks growing up today don’t have to feel so alone and strange. Maybe someday it will be seen as an emotional Ability instead of a disorder. Thank you so much!

  • I have Bipolar since I was 8 years old. I loved Halsey's music because it made sense to me, it's weird but I felt like she understood me... I looked up that she was bipolar, It's good to know I am not alone and what I feel is real. Alot of people say what they said to her I don't look like it and when I am manic I attract so much love and suddenly when my mood changes I lose all of my friends and its like this lone journey of constant change .

Your music gives me strength so express myself more and not be ashamed of my feelings. Thank you for your amazing music.
