In this Morning TV show, Professor El Hamaoui Youssef, psychiatrist and psychotherapist, was a guest where he explained calmly and scientifically the condition of « bipolar disorder ».
At the moment when the psychiatrist started illustrating by examples the condition of the patient when he is in a state of excitement (excess in his gestures and actions, unreflective decisions, insomnia …), one of the hosts bursted out laughing …
While the description may have surprised her, many people criticized the lack of restraint of host « supposed to enlighten the public », while bipolar disorder is a « sometimes severe disease that can be disabling ».
« Such an attitude denotes a lack of professionalism and a total lack of respect for those who suffer from this disorder, » wrote a social networking user, obviously shocked after seeing the segment posted by the professor on Facebook.
