I know next to nothing about Patty Duke. I didn't know she had bipolar or was a mental health advocate. I grew up with no access to television which included any reruns of old shows. I've never seen her television show or The Miracle Worker.
In case you didn't know any of this either, I thought I'd make this post about her passing. I think it's good to know about mental health advocates and be grateful for the impact they had. I think it's good to know about public figures that have bipolar and were articulate and realistic about it.
