Mainly having meetings and tons of fundraisers to support those adults with bipolar/mental illness and bring about awareness for everyone else. I have an adult son with bipolar disorder who struggles daily with depression and many other issues. I often feel overwhelmed and powerless in dealing with his issues. I want to use my talents of fundraising and public speaking to help those who cannot help themselves. I'm wanting to meet with people who want to make a real difference through intercession (prayer and action) on behalf of our loved ones. Medication and therapy helps but I feel there is more to be done. Lets meet, share stories and then take action through fundraising and 5K walks for the ones we love. Bipolar affects the entire family but I've decided not to be victimized and I'm looking for others who feel the same. Believe me, I've seen and heard it ALL, I have nothing but a loving heart toward those who suffer from mental illness. Let's meet and take action:) ACTION=POWER

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
