Bipolar support group
I would like to know if there is some type of bipolar support group, preferably online. If not, why can't we start one? Just about every second message is about bipolar, because there is still so much ignorance. Can't we all learn together and support each other?

Call the number listed on the Foprum home page, which provides an Anxiety and Depression support service, and will be able to tell you if there is any more spcifically Bipolar support group near you.
Im suspicious about the sudden popularity of the diagnosis of Bpolar Disorder rather than plain Depression, which I think is more related to Drug Company salesmanship, and to stupid rules adopted by medical Aids, favouring Bipolar Disorder for chronic medication benefits, rather than Depression.
