World Bipolar Day
World Bipolar Day (WBD) takes place every year on the 30th of March, the birthday of Vincent Van Gogh, who was posthumously diagnosed as having bipolar disorder. The awareness day is an initiative organised by the International Bipolar Foundation in partnership with the Asian Network of Bipolar Disorder and the International Society for Bipolar Disorders. The vision is to bring world awareness to bipolar disorder and to eliminate social stigma, whilst providing information to educate and help people understand the condition.
This WBD, Bipolar UK (6-9 pm, Thursday 30th March) are hosting their free annual online conference. Follow the link to book your free ticket and see the full programme. https://www.bipolaruk.org/bipolar-awareness-day
