Paton on PBS – This is What It’s Like to be Arrested While Suffering Mental Illness

Paton was featured on the PBS News Hour last night where he was able to talk about his past with bipolar–mentioning his arrests and road to recovery.

Paton Blough has two labels he will have to bear for the rest of his life: “bipolar” and “convicted felon.” Having been arrested during his delusional episodes, Blough uses his experiences to help train police officers in crisis management when dealing with the mentally ill.
