Intention of this initiative

I am not a doctor. I CANNOT diagnose you. If you suspect that you have bipolar disorder then you need to visit a medical practitioner for guidance, advice, counselling, support and medical care. If you are having an episode then you need to seek help immediately.

The intention of this website is to share as much information as I possibly can with you. I want you to be able to educate yourself and those around you.
