PEOPLE WITH BIPOLAR CAN RECOVER! This is my mother story. "My own recovery with bipolar has allowed her to fully participate in our community. I became very passionate about reaching out to the many people who never hear the good news that recovery is possible for people with bipolar. Nowadays help is available and there is not any need to suffer in silence. I founded Bipolar Australia to make each and every Australian aware of what the disorder is really about; to educate all communities and eradicate the myths attached to the condition; and to form support groups to avoiding isolation and encourage peer connectivity. As I injured a knee recently, my son Alan is running the half marathon, 21.5 km at the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Bipolar Australia, the only national independent not- for- profit organization dedicated exclusively to bipolar disorder, run by volunteers". Providing educational presentations, conferences, public information stalls and the year celebration of the WORLD BIPOLAR DAY, can only continue happening with your financial support.
