title Global Lens Interviews Bebe Moore Campbell
description The successful author discusses her novel 72 Hour Hold, her experience with depression, and NAMI activism. Part 1 and Part 2 here (download the MPEG4s, there's something wrong with the vodcast links). I'm presenting these videos to celebrate July 2008 as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month (as officially proclaimed in America). Bebe suffered from recurrent depression, and died of brain cancer in 2006. She was a mental health advocate for NAMI and won an award for her children's book Sometimes My Mommy Gets Angry about a young girl whose mother has bipolar disorder.
