Best in Show: Facebook Health Activist Hero Lifetime Achievement Patient Leader Hero

I read a recent post and admire her for putting forth a brave honest view of the challenges faced by people with differences. By sharing her experiences she is enlightening us all regarding the harsh realities of life for the marginalized among us.  — Diana

Melody tirelessly educates those who face mental health challenges as well as their loved ones. She is kind, compassionate, an advocate for those who can't stand up for themselves. I absolutely adore her!  — Ramona

I am currently reading Melody's book, "Haldol and Hyacinths," and am very impressed with her powerful (and often witty) insights into living with bipolar disorder. She is also an amazing activist, who advises organisations on mental health, and creates videos on topical issues in mental health. She has a very wide reach through all of these.  — Tehmina

She is an award-winning author and fearless activist fighting the stigma and discrimination around mental illness, especially in minority communities.  — Jazbi

Melody advocates tirelessly for many people. She advocates for those living with bipolar. While she knows mental health effects all, she has been instrumental in reaching out to those who are often left out of the conversation - Muslims, people of different ethnicities, women, HBTQ. She advocates and works with women in prisons. A true hero.  — Christy

She is a tireless, courageous, creative, brilliant and extraordinary health thinker and innovator and activist for mental health issues. Her heritage and perspective as an American Muslim female bipolar consumer who is a successful activist, attorney and author is incredibly important and unique: she shatters stereotypes and creates understanding.  — Rick

She is an example of successful mental health recovery.  — Akeeba

Simply because she truly cares. Her writing comes from her heart and she has a pure desire to help those who seek her advice. Her advice, stories and the information she spreads are practical and aimed at making a difference in the day-to-day of those who suffer from depression or bipolar disorder.
