Young Scot: Suzy helps others along road to recovery.

Daily Record (Glasgow, Scotland); 1/20/2005

AS a 17-year-old university student, Suzy Johnston developed the initial symptoms of depression.

Her condition developed into manic depression/bipolar affective disorder.

While working with the Education Team of the Renfrewshire Association for Mental Health, giving talks to school pupils and social workers, Suzy started writing about having mental illness and this led to the writing of her autobiography, The Naked Bird Watcher, which was published in the Spring of 2003.

Now Suzy writes, advises, promotes and publishes on mental health awareness issues. She says: 'We all have mental health and with one in four of the population requiring medical help with mental distress at some point in their lives and one in 10 teenagers self-harming, the statistics give cause for concern - particularly when it involves subjects that society would prefer us not to discuss. Whether we like it or not - in some form or other - mental illness will touch us all.

'The majority of psychiatric illness or conditions are likely to occur between the ages of 15 and 25, so it seems reasonable to make mental health education more accessible for this age group.'

One of the Suzy's reasons for writing her book was to target this age group and give an insight and understanding into mental distress. However, the positive message of the book - that good psychiatric care, support and self management are aids to recovery - offers hope and reassurance.

An updated edition of The Naked Bird Watcher is available from The Cairn bookshops and internet book sites.

The Warning Signs Of An Impending Bipolar Disorder Manic Episode

Bipolar disorder - as the name implies - involves two distinct set of symptoms. One set throws the individual down into the depths of a massive depression. The other places the individual who suffers with bipolar disorder at the top of a peak manic episode.

Most everyone can eventually recognize the warning signs of an impending depressive episode related to bipolar disorder. More likely than not, individuals with bipolar disorder try very hard to avoid it.

However, for many individuals with bipolar disorder, it's more difficult to recognize the signs of an impending manic episode. After all, a manic episode of bipolar disorder can be mistaken in some cases - especially in the very early formation -- for the lifting of the corresponding mood swing of the depression.
