Information

Aware does not provide diagnosis, treatment, counselling or consultations. What it does provide is that often-overlooked piece of the puzzle which can, for so many people, be the piece that makes all the difference: knowledge and understanding.

Knowledge about the condition. Knowledge that there is someone to turn to; that someone else has been there; that others understand; that hope is possible; that you too can find your way. Aware’s message is one of hope: recovery is possible.

Tips for Coping

It’s important that you don’t try to deal with depression or bipolar disorder all on your own. Reach out to family and friends, and where help and support is offered, take it. Remember – you’re not alone.
