I have seen International Bipolar Foundation make a difference in many lives not just locally, but globally. They provide support for the consumers and caregivers, the general public, etc. The group is compassionate and driven, which allows them to make a difference! I have seen first hand, how successful they have become since their existence. One of their programs is a High School Essay Contest that they have had the past two years, where high school students submit an essay on what stigma will be like in 2020. This program allows all the students to research and educate themselves. They received essays from all around the world and it is so interesting to see how far they are reaching people!
