Mission Statement

- to provide a safe,
interactive, self-help environment for individuals with Bipolar Disorder to meet, share, and support each other

- to provide timely information and education about Bipolar Disorder - what it is, how it is diagnosed and how it is treated

- to provide advice through web links with professionals

- to treat all individuals as equal, and to do our part to eradicate stigma
as related to mental illness in general, and bipolar disorder in particular

- to provide peripheral support where possible to families and friends

Our Goals (short and long term)

To review and improve security measures

To organize tasks into a document so each of us knows what our responsibilities are

To grow and seek new members (term used loosely) through the addition of more material, more efficient linking of the site and attention to detail and also through the updating of existing materials

To become self supporting through acceptance of donations
