According to the National Institute of Mental Health, bipolar disorder affects 5.7 million Americans every year, and as many as one in five people affected by the disorder commit suicide. International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF) aims to ease the negative effects of bipolar disorder by sponsoring research, providing care and support services for affected people, and educating the public.
IBPF plans to publish a new reference manual, “Healthy Living with Bipolar Disorder,” to help those diagnosed with bipolar disorder to cope with its effects. The reference book is also useful to the families and caregivers of those affected, with chapters written pro-bono by bipolar experts on understanding the illness, as well as various resources for treatment. IBPF plans to distribute the book to mental-health providers, city libraries, and universities across the country. However, the organization still needs $6,850 to meet its goal to publish 500 copies of the reference book at $13.70 each, including funds for binding, graphics, printing, and tabs.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help International Bipolar Foundation distribute information on bipolar disorder. If G-Team members raise $550, then International Bipolar Foundation can publish and distribute 40 copies of “Healthy Living with Bipolar Disorder.” Each additional $15 raised will allow the organization to publish another copy of the reference book.
