Living Successfully with Bipolar
September 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Bipolar disorder affects roughly 5 million Americans each year, yet it can still be a confusing and scary subject, especially for family and friends. People living with Bipolar disorder may experience shame or embarrassment when talking about it, but that doesn’t have to be the case. This presentation will provide information about the illness, stories of individuals living successful and fulfilling lives, shattering the stigmas attached to mental illnesses, and demonstrate how love and patience can help a loved one’s treatment.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ATTENDEES PRIOR TO THE EVENT. Check in will begin 15 minutes prior to the program beginning. Due to video filming, late attendees will be asked to view the presentation in the Green Room.
