This two-hour educational program will show the film Living with Bipolar Disorder followed by a discussion.
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. Calabrese, offers medical commentary after each story, and both Dr. Calabrese and Joe Pantoliano offer closing comments.
All interested in learning more about Bipolar Disorder, including patients, families and clinicians are encouraged to attend. Light refreshments will be provided.
