Stephen Fry - The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive

I had to watch this documentary as part of my course at university. It was very difficult for me to watch but compelling nonetheless! I have always been a huge fan of Stephen Fry in relation to mental health as well as sexual orientation.

This documentary in particular presents a well balanced view on Bipolar Disorder/Manic Depression whilst also telling you about the personal journey endured by Stephen Fry himself. You get to see how many "normal" people suffer with mental health issues as well as a number of celebrities you many not have known to have a struggle.

With more 'high profile' celebrities sharing their own struggles and raising awareness, perhaps the stigma can be ended once and for all.

More information can be found on the IMDb page.
