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.
