The Snob To Talk Mental Illness on MSNBC's "Melissa Harris-Perry" Sunday

Melissa Harris-PerryFirst week at BET's Don't Sleep (hosted by my Arkansas play cousin T. J. Holmes) is down and the second is almost through. I've been a wee bit busy, naturally. But even in all that, I've still got time for the occasional media pit stop! This time it's on MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry's eponymously named show. I'll be on this Sunday, Oct. 14 at 11:30 a.m. EST, talking about mental health issues. As long-time readers know, I've been open about my diagnosis with Bipolar Disorder since 2009. I've written about it here on this blog, spoken about it on Michel Martin's NPR show, and wrote stories about my experiences for Essence Magazine earlier this year in January and BP Magazine in 2011.

Hilarious side note: My friend Dr. Jason Johnson is ALSO going to be on MPH's show this Sunday! It's a black political nerd convention going on! All we need now is's Keli Goff and The Onion's Baratunde Thurston and there will be enough of us there to form Black Nerd Voltron or something.

All the best, Danielle! I have to thank you for the image of Black Nerd Voltron; I can't stop chuckling at the thought.

Saw you on MHP on MSNBC this morning. Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am a twenty something, black professional woman and struggling to manage this illness with my life. It is so challenging to not feel ashamed when I have to call out of work because I cannot make it out of bed some mornings! Your appearance is so important for helping to remove that stigma !
