There are many groups and organizations other than NAMI that share information about mental illnesses and do their part to help raise awareness, end stigma and address, with clear vision, the real issues mental illnesses raise. One group that provides free updates in the form of a newsletter to anyone that requests it is Bipolar Network News (BNN). BNN is a newsletter publisher and online clearinghouse of information about mood disorders, and a quarterly print and email publication.
BNN regularly provides updates on the latest research about bipolar disorder in the hope of shedding light on emerging trends in research and treatment to help educate patients, family members, interested laypeople, physicians, and other field professionals. The newsletter is available free of charge to all who request it. You can visit BNN’s website and request an email subscription by CLICKING HERE, or request a postal subscription HERE.
