Chicago Graduate Discusses Her Book, Understanding Bipolar Disorder, with Authority Magazine

Chicago Campus graduate and adjunct faculty Aimee Daramus, Psy.D. ’16, recently joined Authority Magazine to share about her book, Understanding Bipolar Disorder 

“It is about explaining what bipolar is and where it comes from, which is important for empowering families by making the science understandable to a lot of different people,” Daramus said. “It also helps them understand why their family members act in a certain way, and how it isn’t personal or intended to hurt them.”

Daramus, a graduate of the Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) program, is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in bipolar disorder, psychotic disorders, and trauma. She practices at Urban Balance in Chicago and teaches at Harold Washington College.  

“I want to provide ways for people to understand mental illness and people with a mental illness in a way that builds knowledge and connection,” Daramus said.

Additionally, Daramus provided advice on ways to successfully write and publish a book and to build a brand through publications and other appearances.
