Bertie's Bipolar

Duration 9:48

Bipolar and depression are two illnesses which have been a big part of my family life for as long as I can remember.

Growing up in the house next to my grandad Bert has been an eye opener to the illnesses that he suffers with, it has allowed myself and my family to learn how to support him.

Bert tries his best to be the happy comedian that everyone turns to when they are feeling down, he tries his hardest to put his own feelings aside to make sure everyone else is happy but it isn’t always possible.

In this documentary I aim to show the truest version of my grandad through the ups and the downs to observe and to better understand the illness which looms over our family.
