|Bipolar Disorder is a mental disorder of mood. Swings from the depths of depression to the heights of mania are the hallmarks of this illness. Please join us here to meet others who have been diagnosed with this illness, ask questions, answer some, or just make new friends with true understanding of how you feel. It is true that no one understands us as much as others who have walked in our shoes.
There will be regular scheduled chats every evening from 8 pm - 11 pm E.S.T. with additional hours. Meet chat support operators: allie, JackFlak, mimi, Mrs.Funky, and ToriAmos, and the chat behavior ops : nomadbob1, andie, cowgirlie, Deb.Blass, drummergirl, and epic. Bipolar World is actively seeking more operators, (particularly at this time from the west coast) as we would ideally like to extend our hours. Log in to chat on the screen below or log in on irc to irc.unitedchat.net and join the channel #bipolarworld. Anyone interested in volunteering as a chat operator please contact Allie here . Be sure and include your chat nick in your email, thanks!
There are rules as in any chat room but the cardinal one is to treat others as you would like to be treated. To read the rest of the chat guidelines click here. We request anyone who is under age 18 to use the message board for your age group instead of using the Bipolar Chat Room until we are able to get scheduled chats set up for you.
Please remember, we are volunteers only and not medical professionals.
