Formerly called manic depression, this disorder affects 2-4% of the U.S. population. Featuring periodic fluctuations between deep depression to normality to wild mania (including sexual impropriety, ill-considered spending and delusional thinking), it disrupts and frequently destroys the victim’s life.

Guest speaker Donna Lechleiter, a registered nurse with a 20-year career in pediatric home health, mental health and hospice, will discuss how this disorder impacted her life, her recovery and her current roles including mother, NAMI mental health activist, and Athens Photographic Project member.
