Hannah Blum

Patient Leader

I am a mental health advocate and influencer on mediated platforms. These platforms include the HealthyPlace YouTube Channel, Instagram, Twitter and FaceBook. I create videos about mental health and talk about my experience living with bipolar 2 disorder. My blog Halfway2Hannah talks about mental health, ways to become an advocate, stigma and shares my personal story as well as the story of others. I am the author of the HealthyPlace blog, "Im Bipolar Too." I have an unfiltered approach and send a bold message about the stigma that silences so many individuals living with a mental illness. My mission is to empower individuals living with a mental illness and encourage self-love.

I stumbled on to Hannah while I was on instagram. Her energy, witty sense of humor and her honesty was what caught my attention. She works really hard to bring awareness to Bipolar. Her Instagram is uplifting, inspiring and most of all genuine.  — christine
