Home And Away’s Spencer Has Bipolar Disorder

September 19, 2013

Australian viewers of Home And Away will have noticed Spencer Harrington acting a little strange in recent weeks. Tonight, the reason for this was finally revealed. Spencer has had bipolar disorder since the age of 15.

I saw a little bit about bipolar in Neighbours a few years ago when they featured a character called Samantha Fitzgerald. But I have never personally watched a bipolar storyline on a soap from its beginning. I think this is the first bipolar storyline to start on screen, although fans of Eastenders are welcome to tell me that I am wrong!

It will be interesting and educational for me personally to watch the storyline. I am pleased, as always, to see a soap covering disability through a long-term character.

Thank you again, Home And Away.
