As a way to pay tribute to Fisher’s advocacy and combat stigma, fans opened up on Twitter this week about their own mental health experiences with the hashtag #InHonorOfCarrie. The initiative began when Ana Marie Cox, a senior political correspondent for MTV, started tweeting about her bipolar disorder.
I’m pretty open about being in recovery; I’ve been more circumspect about mental illness. In honor of Carrie Fisher: I’m bipolar, too.
