Thank you so much for stopping by!
The Bipolar Babe Project has a true grassroots history founded by Andrea Paquette, who created a Bipolar Babe t-shirt and www.bipolarbabe.com to share her personal experience, so others did not have to suffer in silence like she once did. Her efforts led to meeting supportive and dedicated individuals in the local Victoria community who formed The Bipolar Disorder Society of British Columbia.
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 6 months later in a mere 29 days from date of application to approval. Our Society holds great promise and has been impactful in the mental health community. The Bipolar Disorder Society of BC has designed programs providing mental health awareness, education and peer support for those facing mental health challenges in hopes of eliminating stigma
and unwarranted fears of this mental illness with a special focus on youth. Visit our Programs Page
