Challenging Bipolar taboos
Bipolar is a mental disorder that affects about 60 million people around the world. There are medications available to help people with this disorder but the stigma that comes with having Bipolar is preventing a lot of people from accessing medication. In Saudi Arabia, it's not much different.
Saudi journalist and author, Ghada Aboud, has written an Arabic novel around this rather taboo subject, in an attempt to make it part of normal conversation.
