Bipolar is a brain disorder that causes shifts in mood from high to low -- mania to depression! The vision of World Bipolar Day (WBD) is to bring world awareness to bipolar disorders and to eliminate social stigma. WBD is an initiative of the Asian Network of Bipolar Disorder (ANBD) the International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF) and the International Society for Bipolar Disorders (ISBD). It is celebrated each year on March 30, the birthday of Vincent van Gogh who was posthumously diagnosed as probably having bipolar disorder.
