Lisa Underwood is a wife and mother — and a person living with bipolar disorder. She was diagnosed after her third child, after struggling through dark times that she thought was postpartum. “People really need to know it’s OK to have a mental illness, to live happily with it, to have families, to have jobs,” she says. “And that there’s just a lot of hope for us.” Every weekend, her family goes on outings together.
