About 1 in 100 people suffer from some form of bipolar disorder, a rate comparable to that of schizophrenia but far lower than the incidence of major depression. Men and women are equally likely to develop bipolar disorder, and only about 1 in 3 people with the disorder receive any treatment. Sadly, about 1 in 5 people who remain untreated eventually commit suicide.

Rising From the Ashes...

Phoenix (Mythology)

A legendary bird that lived in Arabia. The Phoenix consumed itself by fire every 500 years, and a new Phoenix sprang from its ashes. In ancient Egypt, the Phoenix represented the sun. Early Christian tradition adopted the phoenix as a symbol of immortality and resurrection. It is my belief that the phoenix symbolizes the repeated rebirth and reawakening of the bipolar person. Those with bipolar disorder may burn, but rise from the ashes stronger and more beautiful each time.
