World Bipolar Day

world bipolar dayToday, 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.

Bipolar World. Bipolar Blogs. Julie FastIBPF. Two Bipolar Chicks. And many more.

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.”
