Today is World Bipolar Day – the birthday of Vincent Van Gogh, who was posthumously diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The vision of World Bipolar Day (WBD) is to bring world awareness to bipolar disorders and eliminate social stigma.

Bipolar disorder is a common mental health-related issue. It’s nobody’s fault, but it can be treated.
