Thanks for helping SADAG by filling in the online Bipolar Survey

We at SADAG would like to improve our knowledge and understanding of how people living with Bipolar Disorder deal with challenges, treatment and support. This will help us to identify ways that we could provide better support and information, as well as to better advocate for more patient treatment and support.

There is very little information available about the experience of South Africans living with Bipolar Disorder. In particular, we would like to know about the types of treatment available to you ; how you access treatment; how effective that treatment is; and whether you experience stigma related to your disorder.

We greatly value information straight from you as the person living with Bipolar, so please help us by anonymously taking this short survey.
