Today, March 30, is World Bipolar Day. World Bipolar Day is a collaborative initiative of the International Society for Bipolar Disorders, the International Bipolar Foundation, and the Asian Network of Bipolar Disorders.
I took advantage of the opportunity to do some web surfing and found an incredibly rich array of Twitter sites devoted to this topic.
The International Bipolar Foundation, I learned, has a website with lots of information that people may want to explore and offers a free book on living with bipolar which I will be reviewing in an upcoming post.
Muffy Walker, founder of IBPF had this to say about World Bipolar Day –
“As Martin Luther King once said, I have a dream that one day our nations will rise up and create all men equal. And I have a dream that my son, who has lived most of his life with bipolar disorder, will one day live in a nation where he will not be judged by his illness, but rather by the content of his character. I believe that World Bipolar Day will help bring my dream to fruition.”
