A Holiday Message And Resource List From IBPF

Although the holiday season is known to be the most wonderful time of the year, the truth is that it can also be very difficult for many of us who are suffering from hardships and/or mental illness. It is important that we take care of our own mental health and also check in with others to see how they are doing. What better way to celebrate the spirit of the holidays than to lend your love and support to someone in need of it! We have compiled a list of resources for you to keep on hand if you or someone you know needs support or guidance over the holidays; we at International Bipolar Foundation want our community to know that you are not alone and are so valued. Best wishes for your well-being and happiness this holiday season.
