Life with Bipolar II
Joining the show this week is Ruth Gladwyn-Nash, a BHIS Counselor at Heart and Solutions serving the Ames, Ankeny and Waukee communities. While pursuing her degree in English from Iowa State University, Ruth found herself in a mental health crisis which resulted in a Bipolar II diagnosis. She has since found that her own mental health struggles have only helped her work more effectively with children struggling with their own mental health and behaviors.
