International Bipolar Foundation Essay Competition 2013

International Bipolar Foundation Essay Competition 2013

The International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF) has as part of its mission to erase stigma associated with mental illness through public education. To that end, they have launched a global essay competition open to all high school students internationally.
“Our hope”, says Walker, President and founder of IBPF, “is that students will be interested in winning the prize and thereby research stigma in order to write the essay. In so doing, we will be educating a lot of young people and hopefully changing their perception about mental illness”.
