“In My Own Little Corner” has been described as a motivational cabaret. It’s a hug with music contained with touching, heartfelt, hopeful, and educational messages. Through song and story, and a bit of dance, Chryssie Whitehead shares about her mother’s death, her career, and stories of her highs and lows, along with the huge grasp mental illness has played in both her and her mom’s life. She explores how it is possible to get proper help, medicine, and tools to find clarity in one’s life with bipolar disorder or any mental illness.
