How the Tascha Halliburton Foundation Aims to Help
Starting July 2019, Tascha Halliburton will be producing a series of videos about Bipolar. These videos will be hosted by the Polar Warriors founder, Robert Whitaker. Through financing production and advising on the creative strategy of the channel, Tascha hopes to support Bipolar awareness. A topic she is personally familiar with. ‘I suffer with Bipolar 1 on a daily basis. So I know the intense personal struggle others diagnosed with the illness face,’ Tascha shares.
Tascha says her goal for the series is to go beyond movie depictions and stereotypes of Bipolar Depression. To instead look at the inner workings of Bipolar to dispel myths and misunderstandings surrounding Bipolar.
'‘Misdiagnosis is a common problem in mental health. Through producing weekly content, we can spread awareness of an issue that’s often overlooked. We live in the digital age. If one person experiencing Bipolar symptoms stumbles upon the Polar Warriors platform and becomes empowered to discuss them with their doctor, then we know we’ve accomplished our mission.’'
