Say It Forward

. . . . . . . . . . . .

When it comes to mental health conditions, silence is not golden. Silence breeds stigma, and stigma hurts. It prevents people from seeking life-saving treatment and support. The International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF) hopes you’ll join forces with us to educate and inspire people to learn the facts about mental illness and break the barrier of stigma.

Our Challenge

. . . . . . . . . . . .

1 in 4 adults lives with a mental health condition, but only 1 in 3 receives treatment.

Our Opportunity

. . . . . . . . . . . .

With treatment, individuals with a mental illness can and do achieve their dreams and live full and productive lives. When we separate false perceptions from the truth, stigma loses power and the power shifts to individuals who need help. Say It Forward is our way of spreading the word with just a few clicks of the mouse.

How It Works

. . . . . . . . . . . .

We have gathered a number of truths about mental illness to help you educate your friends, family, and colleagues. We’ll be tracking how many people the campaign reaches and educates about mental health conditions during the week leading up to Bipolar Awareness day.

Please help us meet our goal of reaching 50,000 people this year.
