Going to College with Bipolar Disorder

Embed Video: 

Sarah shares her advice for teens who have bipolar disorder and aren't sure if they should go to college or not. 

Going to college is absolutely possible. The most important things that have helped Sarah be successful are sticking to her treatment plan and a consistent sleep schedule. 


Im about to start a course in english and counselling/psychotherapy.
Im bipolar.
Im hoping all will go well.
I am now 47yrs old and have wanted to go college for yrs but wasnt allowed for many reasons.
I have now taken big steps to enrol.
I just fear I could let myself down even thou I really want to study im looking forward to it but part of me is scared as I dont want to fail.
Failing is a stress to me.
