• Be a YouTube member. In order to upload your video, you must have or create a valid YouTube account (we can help you set this up).
• Make sure the sound on your video is clear. If no one can hear you, no one will watch it. Make sure to shoot in quiet environments and to project.
• Don't backlight. Make sure light is on your face and not behind you (i.e. don't sit in front of a bright window).
• Title your video. Use the title “You’ve Got This” and include your name and location (ex: “You’ve Got This: Tracy from Michigan”).
• Tag your video. Use tags to describe your video so that other people can find it (ex: “Living with bipolar” or “Bipolar woman from Florida”).
• Keep it short. Three minutes max.
1) Keep it positive! The main goal of your video should be to inspire hope and provide useful advice to the recently diagnosed.
2) Be yourself. Speak from the heart.
3) How did you feel when you were first diagnosed? Were some of your fears unreasonable? What helped you learn to cope?
4) What is the best advice you could give to someone that was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder? What do you wish you had known when you first found out?
The goal of this campaign is to provide POSITIVE and INSPIRING stories to those recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Because of this, we want to make sure your video stays relevant to the topic and provides encouragement to others.
1) Other mental disorders (OCD, ADHD, PTSD, etc.)
2) Related topics that are not uplifting to the viewer (Suicide, Death, Overdose).
