World Bipolar Day

World Bipolar day is celebrated on March 30th every year, Vincent Van Gogh’s birthday, who is believed to have had Bipolar Disorder.

Bipolar Disorder affects roughly 1.3% of Australian adults, equating to approximately one in fifty adults. It is a devastating illness which affects its population in many different ways. It is important that we remember how important health care professionals, loved ones and sufferers are for opening up a discussion about this mental illness and improving treatment. 

Coronavirus has had a massive impact on all parts of the mental health sector. Unfortunately to little surprise, the combination of long term isolation and lack of socialisation could cause serious negative impacts on an individuals bipolar disorder. Stable management of bipolar disorder is essential for managing the symptoms an individual experiences and the best way to protect their wellbeing.
