September, 2006
Forum Mod and Administrator


Bipolar World congratulates Maz, our Volunteer of the month for the month of September, 2006.  Maz is a very supportive and friendly moderator in Bipolar World's bipolar disorder forum where she willingly shares her knowledge and personal experiences with others.  We're delighted to say Maz is also a forum administrator where she helps to keep the forums running smoothly so that we all can enjoy our visits there.  Quite a feat for anyone to accomplish! 


Maz hales from New York City, Manhattan to be exact, where she works as a finance manager.  Following a hospitalization and a few misdiagnoses, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 26.  Since then, she has also been diagnosed with panic disorder and ptsd.  We asked Maz why she volunteers with us and this is what she has to say:


"Well, I was a member for a long time, liked it here and stuck around.  The board has taught me a lot and helped me out when I needed it, especially when I was first diagnosed and had no idea of what was going on.  This place still helps me out.  I wanted to return the favor by offering to volunteer with Bipolar World." 

The next time you're in the forums, look around and you'll be sure to spot her reaching out to touch someone's life in a special way.  This is our Maz who we're so very proud of and happy that she's volunteering with us!  Lots of hugs from us all.




Special Thanks from Allie and David
