Every 41 seconds a star leaves us too soon and every 42 seconds someone is left wondering why. In the bipolar community, approximately 25 to 50% of individuals with bipolar disorder attempt suicide, and 11% successfully take their own lives. Our mission is simple: to change these statistics. We accomplish this by developing innovative programs for not only empowering those who struggle with a bipolar diagnosis but also by rebuilding our communities on a foundation of compassion and caring to restore hope for us all. Our goal is to break down - brick by brick - the wall of silence, shame and stigma surrounding mental illness; and the only way to do that is to involve each and every one of us. We want to restore hope by giving people purpose in their lives as that my friends is how we've discovered you can indeed stop those who are suicidal from committing suicide.
