Balancing Act – Writing Through a Bipolar Life offers hope to those living with mental health conditions and their loved ones. As a therapist who left her career due to a mental health crisis, O’Malley educates the public about mental health and fights stigma against those living with mental health conditions by challenging stereotypes.
O’Malley’s writing recounts her struggle with bipolar disorder, the two decades it took to receive a proper diagnosis, and how her journey gave her purpose. O’Malley balances living with bipolar disorder with her work as a mental health advocate and former caretaker of her now-adult son and now-deceased parents.
