May 1, 2013- Living with Bipolar Disorder 

Join us on May 1 from 6:30-8:30 pm for Living with Bipolar Disorder, at the Jacksonville Children's Commission: 1095 A Philip Randolph Blvd.  for more information and to RSVP visit: http://livingwithbipolarjax.eventbrite.com/

Living with Bipolar Disorder is an AFSP program that includes a 43 minute film about Bipolar Disorder. It features an introduction by Joe Pantoliano, an actor and television star, and a review of the illness by our clinical expert Dr. Joe Calabrese from Case Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio. The film also features the stories as told by three people who have been treated for bipolar disorder as well as the widow of a man who died by suicide who most likely suffered from bipolar. The clinical expert, Dr. Ca...labrese, offers medical commentary after each story, and both Dr. Calabrese and Joe Pantoliano offer closing comments.

All interested in learning more about Bipolar Disorder are invited.
Refreshments will be served.


**THANK YOU TO MENTAL HEALTH AMERICA NORTHEAST FLORIDA AND THE JACKSONVILLE SYSTEM OF CARE INITIATIVE FOR HELPING US TO BRING THIS PROGRAM TO THE COMMUNITY!**
