An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness is a memoir written by American clinical psychologist and bipolar disorder researcher Kay Redfield Jamison and published in 1995. The book details Jamison's experience with bipolar disorder and how it affected her in various areas of her life from childhood up until the writing of the book. Narrated in the first person, the book shows the effect of manic-depressive illness in family and romantic relationships, professional life, and self-awareness, and highlights both the detrimental effects of the illness and the few positive ones.
In 2009, Melody Moezzi, an Iranian-American attorney who was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder, reviewed An Unquiet Mind on NPR, describing the memoir as "the most brilliant and brutally honest book I've ever read about bipolar disorder". Moezzi celebrated how the book represented that "an unquiet mind need not be a deficient one".
A 2011 post in The Guardian held that An Unquiet Mind has been unrivaled since its publication in its honesty about life with bipolar disorder.
