Drawing by Chato Stewart
Victoria Maxwell (BFA/BPP*) has become as known as North America’s very own Bipolar Princess and is a sought after speaker, performer and educator on the ‘lived’ experience of mental illness, recovery, return to work and dismantling stigma.
She lives with bipolar disorder, anxiety and psychosis and has for more than 12 years, been presenting keynote performances and workshops at across Canada and the States. Her four award winning one-person shows tour internationally and her Psychology Today blog, Crazy for Life: Escapades of a Bipolar Princess was named one of the Top Ten Bipolar Blogs.
She also offers consulting services to individuals with mental health issues, their loved ones as well as to professionals working in the field. She’s a member of the national Collaborative Research Team to study psychosocial issues in Bipolar Disorder (CREST.BD). Her most recent play, ‘That’s Just Crazy Talk’, was the focus of a CREST.BD study examining its ability to reduce stigma and impact hope.
One of Victoria’s favorite quotes is: “Sometimes the harder we fall – the higher we bounce.”
