Good idea Nick (Mr Steed).

Can I start the ball rolling with Equilibrium - The Bipolar Foundation. A great site for information and all the latest research. Stephen Fry is our special ambassador as you will see from the homepage, or by going to read Stephen's message.

http://www.bipolar-foundation.org/ (!)

Eventually we may have a discussion forum, but not yet. But we do have a Newsletter so if you haven't already signed up for the Bipolar-In-Touch Network you can do it here: http://www.bipolar-foundation.org/mod_product/register.aspx?o=1288
(The first newsletter will be going out soon - I have to edit it first ).

You can ask us any question, either Alan the CEO and a consultant psychiatrist or I will answer you: http://www.bipolar-foundation.org/index.aspx?o=1087

And you can help us in our research by filling in one or more questionnaires (all of which can be done online and are totally confidential): http://www.bipolar-foundation.org/index.aspx?o=1222

Pete Snelling has already volunteered to help with the Bipolar Testimony Project, of which I am the manager. I am looking for personal testimonies of what the experience of bipolar disorder is like all around the world. You can volunteer, or you can go and read some of the testimonies we already have, they are very interesting and you will probably feel a lot of empathy. http://www.bipolar-foundation.org/index.aspx?o=1085

And of course, we need donations... But no pressure.

Please have a look.

*Stickies*

Also I would reccommend the website of Electro Boy (remember the documentary?). It's not just about electro-shock therapy.

Forum member Miss Seaneen has her own very informative websitePole to Polar: The Secret Life of a Manic Depressive . I hope she doesn't mind me mentioning it here. She's had to put up with more bullshit than many people.

Thank you :-// The documentary actually came first! I got a strongly worded email from the makers of it telling me to change the name when there was a brief discussion about the blog becoming a book, but the damage was done, which is why I added the Pole to Polar part.

Katy Sara, tell Alan Ogilive to get back in touch!

I'd like to recommend http://www.moodgarden.org/forum/. It's the most understanding and varied bipolar and depression forum I've ever been on.

Not much to deal with, don't worry! There was some talk of me helping out with some of the patient stuff on the site and adding my site as a link, and I wanted to know how my blog's version of the survey went. It was a few months ago though so it's fine!

Ah yes, *brain clicks with recognition*. I'll bring it up when I next see him, but that may be a while because he is jetting around the world right now. On his behalf, thanks for your help.

Hopefully I'll be forgiven for posting a link to another forum; but this forum offers something different to the supportive atmosphere of the SLOTMD forum:

http://www.crazymeds.us/CrazyTalk/index.php?

Crazymeds is the forum for the site:

http://www.crazymeds.us/

If you're after medication information , this is the best place to look. The website combines both information from clinical trials, books and doctors with user based experiance. It's an informative environment - whether you only want to know the broad picture of how your medication works, or if you're an avid reader of psychopharmacology journals.

The forum is active and you'll get a mix user based information and links to journals when you ask questions.

However, it is a medication based forum - it works on the basis that brain cooties (bipolar, schizophrenia ect) have a biological basis and discusses such treatments.

If you're after just support, or believe that brain cooties should be treated with therapy/ not treated at all, then you're better off staying here but if you just have a few questions about your medications or other medical related things, come on over (because let's face it, when you get slapped with a diagnosis and meds, you want to know a little more than what the patient information leaflet tells you).

Thank you.

PS/ Yes, I do live on. Rejoice / Curse / Carry on as before - delete as applicable.

Not that I don't think Inducible is worth quoting, but what did you want to say banjo?
