Alfredo Zotti on surviving Bipolar disorder and being a creative person

Hi, my name is Alfredo and I am an Italian immigrant–I emigrated to Australia from Italy in 1974. Back in the 80s I discovered that I had bipolar disorder, however that did not stop me from creating a good life for myself. I did all the things that made me a good citizen: I started to work but as a musician and as a cook in various Italian restaurants and later went to university and was able to get a university degree

I majored in sociology in anthropology and later study some psychology. Later, I began to help people online people that suffer with depression and anxiety and bipolar disorder. What I discovered was that many people with bipolar disorder, but also other disorders such as depression and anxiety were very creative and extremely intelligent. Today after many years of helping people online and helping myself and my wife–because we both suffered with bipolar disorder–I have come to one important conclusion: that bipolar disorder, just like depression and anxiety in other mental disorders as well, it’s part of being human of the human experience.

I invite you to learn more through this video as we discuss creativity and mental disorders with experts.
