Creativity & Bipolar with Danielle Hark, Sarah Jickling, and Michaela DonohueRead Now
For the month of November I hosted a panel of fellow bipolar advocates and led a discussion on the ties (or lack thereof) between depression, mania, and creativity. Each panelist came from a different artistic background and shared their own background, beliefs, and creative process.

Danielle works in a variety of creative mediums, including mixed media, assemblage, painting, photography, and poetry.

In 2017, Sarah released her first solo album,When I Get Better, which documents her journey through bipolar recovery. Jickling’s idiosyncratic songs have been featured on radio stations across the country and in independent films, and she has opened up about her experiences with mental illness on radio, local television, podcasts, blogs and at live speaking events. Her latest album, The Family Curse, deals with intergenerational trauma and mental illness in families.
Michaela Donohue is a U.S. Army Veteran, healthcare worker and artist.
