Hi, I’m James. As I write this, I’m 25, and after 9 years of doctors appointments, consultations and self help techniques, I was diagnosed with Bipolar Effective Disorder, Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder, and Impulse Control Disorder. By chance, in November 2016 whilst in a manic episode, I was detained under section 2 of the Mental Health Act, in an acute hospital ward, where I remained detained for 13 days.
Bipolarandpersonality.com is a blog for information & support for patient sufferers, in addition to their family & friends in all aspects of mental health, in particular Bipolar & Emotionally Unstable/Borderline Personality disorders. Hopefully, as time goes by, we can expand further. I’m hopeful that in the future, we can also develop a forum, in addition to the social channels I have already setup via Facebook and Twitter.
I hope that together, we can provide help, support & build awareness for sufferers, be that in the form of the patient, or their family and friends. You can always stay up to date with the latest content, tips & advice by signing up to the Bipolar & Personality newsletter, it’s free;
Thanks for stopping by, and, if you’d support the cause by liking bookmarking this page and following me via the social channels linked above, or joining the Facebook discussion group, that would get us off to a fantastic start. I’d also be happy to take any questions, or contributions of any kind.
I hope to see a lot of you around,
