“They say we should stand for something so I’m standing for this,
A voice for the broken to ensure we’re not dismissed,
An example of the fact that you should not discriminate,
We don’t dislike ourselves, it’s the illness that we hate”
Bipolar Disorder can affect a person’s life in 101 major and minor ways, everything from relationship break-ups to losing your job or under-performing at school or uni. Self-Management provides tools and techniques to manage the condition. It boosts awareness of warning signs and ‘triggers’ and gives you the power. It takes power out of the hands of the illness and puts it back where it belongs – with the individual.
This year for Bipolar Awareness Week #BPAW18 we are celebrating and raising awareness of Self-Management. We are campaigning to develop more Self-Management tools.https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/bpaw18
