National Bipolar Awareness Day
A public education campaign, the first National Bipolar Awareness Day was held on Wednesday 27 June 2012 by Bipolar UK, the Royal College of Psychiatrists and Bipolar Scotland.
What is Bipolar Awareness Day about?
The aim of Bipolar Awareness Day is to raise awareness and understanding of bipolar and its prevalence in the UK.
We hope it will develop into an annual event with each year focusing on a particular aspect of this severe mental illness. In the first year, the day is focusing on the length of time (an average of over ten years) it takes to receive a correct diagnosis.
Our objective is that medical professionals, individuals affected by bipolar and the general public are all better informed about the condition, and this will contribute to people receiving an accurate diagnosis in a shorter period of time.
