Balancing Act - Writing Through a Bipolar Life offers hope to those living with mental illness and their loved ones. As a therapist who left her career due to mental illness, O'Malley educates the public about mental health and fights stigma against those living with mental illness by challenging stereotypes.

O'Malley's writing recounts her struggle with bipolar disorder, the two decades it took to receive a proper diagnosis, and how her journey gave her purpose. O'Malley balances living with bipolar disorder with her work as a mental health advocate and caretaker of her son and parents.


Kitt describes her struggle to manage bipolar disorder in Balancing Act. Her profound knowledge of herself enhances her coping abilities as she learns to avoid triggers that will likely exacerbate her symptoms. She reminds readers that medication can only go so far and that a wide array of tools are needed to keep the illness under control. This book will bring comfort, validation, hope, and education especially to anyone with bipolar disorder.
