Welcome to the Bipolar Babe website!
We are thrilled to have you visit today and hope you will return periodically for updates to the site, BLOG, FORUM and so much more. Have a cruise around and learn about stigma, share personal stories, write poetry and educate yourself on the topic of bipolar disorder.
We just want to let you know that we have an Indiegogo Campaign running right NOW dedicated to raising funds for our program delivery in partnership with iBRiD iPhone Wallets. It is an exciting time and we need your support so please visit HERE and help us Stomp Out Stigma.
Who are We?
The Bipolar Babe project was officially launched in May 2009 and one of the many successes of the project has been the creation of the youth classroom presentations, which focus on sharing a personal story of an individual that lives well with bipolar disorder. Bipolar Babe has also been extremely active in the community and media and we are eager to take these chats free of stigma even further into the world and we need your support! Andrea Paquette and Natasha Tracy from natashatracy.com are your presenters in the classroom and the community.
The Bipolar Disorder Society of British Columbia
The Bipolar Disorder Society of BC is the umbrella organization for the bipolar babe project and is a registered non-profit since January 2010 receiving charitable status in August 2010. Our society holds great promise for aiding the local, provincial, and national mental health community. The Bipolar Disorder Society of BC has designed programs providing awareness about mental illness in hopes of eliminating stigma, discrimination and unwarranted fears of this condition with a special focus on youth.
Remember, no matter what our challenges, we can all live extraordinary lives.
