This is the first time I’ve heard of the #sayitforwardcampaign and I think it’s great. I saw this one facebook today so I checked out their website to see some of the other stuff they have. Treatment saves lives. Use the tags #sayitforward and #eliminatethebarrier to be a part of this. They have several images you can share on social media about #bipolardisorder and the #stigma of #mentalillness. You can also share your story to show others that #bipolar disorder is nothing to be ashamed of. 60 million people worldwide are living with it and many are afraid to seek #treatment because of the stigma associated with it. It is also often misdiagnosed (either as depression or #depression and #anxiety) and a misdiagnosis means the wrong #medication. We need to understand the disorder and help people not only feel more comfortable seeking treatment but also supporting them to not give up if they’re misdiagnosed. Check out sayitforwardcampaign.org and also learn more about bipolar disorder, #internationalbipolarfoundation is a great resource!! 💕
