Confused. Disjointed. Lost.

The misrepresentation of bipolar disorder and other psychiatric conditions in the media can lead to fear and stigma that make it difficult for people to understand what it is like to live with bipolar disorder.

This misrepresentation can also affect the quality of care that people with bipolar disorder receive. More than 5 in 6 adults feel that stigma is a major barrier to treatment for mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder.
