Disclaimer

Bipolar World is a privately owned site(s) and is operated strictly by volunteers, which includes the owners and partners. We strive to offer concise and verifiable information about Bipolar Disorder, but we are not professionals. Do not use the information in this web site in any way to replace the advice of the doctor or professional who is caring for you. Always talk to your doctor before changing medications or dosage, or if you experience any serious side effects or questions regarding your health. Do not attempt to diagnose yourself based on the information presented, or attempt to treat yourself.

All interactive areas within the Bipolar World websites operate on a peer to peer basis. The site owners, partners, chat operators and supervisors, forum moderators and supervisors, email group moderators and supervisors, and email responders are all volunteers. None have special training in their area, other than their own personal experience with the illness (and this can vary from one person with bipolar disorder to another), personal education, and empathy for others.

Bipolar World accepts no responsibility for information posted in our chat rooms, forums, email list, or in emails. The opinions expressed in articles within our site are those of the writers, and may not reflect the opinion of Bipolar World. We are not responsible for the content within websites that are linked to or from Bipolar World. We retain the right to reject materials that we feel are inappropriate, or to ban individuals whose behavior is likewise inappropriate within the interactive areas.

All individuals with Bipolar Disorder are welcome within our community at their own discretion and at their own risk. Upon entrance to Bipolar World, and upon use of any of its information and/or interactive areas, you agree to release and hold harmless Bipolar World, it's owners, partners, and all of its volunteer representatives from any and all damages and liabilities that may arise from your participation at our online support sites located at http://www.bipolarworld.net and http://www.bipolarworld.org.
