Bipolar Hong Kong 躁鬱香港 is the SAR’s first peer-led bipolar support network! We are a collective of Hong Kong professionals, students, writers & artists, the majority of whom live with bipolar disorder. Our mission: to fight the stigma and stereotypes attached to mental illness in Hong Kong (while also occasionally – and mischievously – reveling in them). Most importantly of all, we’re here to remind YOU that you’re not alone in your quest for innovative and creative ways of managing your mood disorder.
Whether you have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, or suspect you have bipolar disorder, whether you’re Bipolar 1, or Bipolar 2, whether you hate your mood disorder, or LOVE your mood disorder, we’re here to remind you that you are far from alone. In fact, you share your mood disorder with one in fifteen Hongkongers. (The rest are just nuts.)
Bipolar Hong Kong is your chance to unite with others like you, explore and experiment with fresh ways of reducing your symptoms, receive the peer support you need and deserve, and perhaps change the way you view your mood disorder forever, as well as the way others perceive you.
If you’re looking for fact-proven medical advice written by a leading psychiatrist with a jumble of indecipherable letters after his/ her name, this site is not for you. But if you’re looking for provocative theories based on self-research and personal experiences, peer advice (including details of Hong Kong’s First & Only Bipolar Support Group), creative inspiration & humor, join us!
Relax. Go crazy! Be yourself. Be anyone else your bipolar mind has created! After all, if we can’t share our experiences in a 100% confidential, supportive, creative environment and occasionally laugh at ourselves, we’re probably screwed…
