Abena Korkor Addo’s Psychosocial Africa partners with International organizations to create awareness of bipolar disorder on the 30th day of March 2019 at the Accra Mall Food Court as the world celebrates Bipolar Day Internationally.
As the world commemorates and sheds light on people living with bipolar disorder on Saturday under the theme ”Creating an Alliance of Awareness”, locally, Mental Health Society of Ghana, (MEHSOG), Time to Change Global and Psychosocial Africa will also merge resources to hold an event at the Accra Mall Food Court at 12pm on the day.
The event will seek to create awareness and some deep education about the condition while the advocacy groups open up to welcome and support more people who are living with the condition.
The three organizations who are pooling resources to put together the event vary in functions, though they aim at the same solution – supporting, dealing with stigmatization and discrimination of people with the condition.
Mental Health Society of Ghana, (MEHSOG) supports mental health patients while Time to Change Global is an anti-stigma and anti-discrimination campaign originated from the UK and Psychosocial Africa is a mental health advocacy and support group.
Celebrated every year on March 30th, World Bipolar Day (WBD) is a world-wide awareness initiative of ISBD in conjunction with the Asian Network of Bipolar Disorder (ANBD) and the International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF).
Through international collaboration, WBD provides a platform for:
- Global education
- Open discussion
- Improved sensitivity about bipolar disorder among others
