The purpose of this web site is to provide information about bipolar disorder and to offer support, not only to those affected, but their family, loved ones and friends. This web site is operated by just these kinds of people. We are not licensed psychiatrists, psychologists or mental health counselors, but a community of people who want to share experiences and hope. All posts and comments in this website are personal opinions and should not be substituted for therapy or other professional mental health counseling. Browse through our Directory to the left to find more details about us, bipolar disorder and resources we offer, such as recommended books, links to find help near you, as well as supportive forums and chat rooms. There’s even a place to keep a private journal and a free mood chart in our downloads section. We welcome you to join our community and hope you find it informative and comforting.
