World Bipolar Day

World Bipolar Day

World Bipolar Day is taking place on Friday 30 March 2018.  Aware is joining mental health organisations worldwide calling for increased education and awareness to improve understanding and eliminate the social stigma that can be associated with bipolar disorder and other mental health conditions. 

“World Bipolar Day provides a great opportunity for mental health organisations worldwide to come together and bring global awareness to bipolar disorder, to educate and improve public understanding of the condition, as well as ensuring those with a diagnosis are familiar with the supports available to them.” says Bríd O'Meara, Director of Services here at Aware.
