(June 27, 2012) Muffy Walker worked in the mental health field for more than 18 years and earned an MBA in marketing before her youngest son was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
All of these experiences show in the International Bipolar Foundation, an organization that Walker founded with a mission “to eliminate bipolar disorder through the advancement of research; to promote and enhance care and support services; and to eras associated stigma through public education.”
Walker and the IBF are the Treatment Advocacy Center’s next-door neighbors in the exhibit hall at the NAMI 2012 National Convention, now meeting in Seattle.
Supporters of California’s Laura’s Law, the San Diego-based group offers an international buddy program, outreach and referral, a “memory wall” to post messages of “love or hope” through their website, a free copy of their new book, Healthy Living with Bipolar Disorder and more.
Even if you’re not in Seattle for NAMI 2012, you can meet our neighbor, the International Bipolar Foundation online.
