Bipolar Disorder Education Series / Historical Diagnosis: Winston Churchill

About this video:

Did you know that Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during World War II, suffered from bipolar disorder? In this episode, Dr. Ronald R. Fieve, author of the recently published book "Bipolar Breakthrough," is here to explain just how bipolar disorder doesn't have to stop you from achieving greatness.

Transcript:

Dr. Fieve: Winston Churchill had a incredible amount of energy, and on the other hand, he had the foresight and the ability to accomplish just about anything he touched. Now in his family history, there was a strong bipolar alcoholic trend. Went through the Churchill family for three or four generations. In his depressed days, he would sit quietly and not talk. Stare into space for weeks and weeks on end. During his high phases, he was energetic, but a healthy energy that, you now, was very strong and to the point, and you could command armies, and countries, and the greatest respect of anyone during that particular time. He clearly had a bipolar illness, but if you had try to give him a treatment, he probably would reject it and rather sit in the depression for three months first and come out to be the old Winston. Carrying on and winning the war.
