THE STORY:

Hi! My name is Shrita Pendekanti, and thank you for visiting my website!

This page is intended to be a pathway between the International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF) and anyone supporting my attempt to better the lives of those living with a mental illness.

I spent the last few years reading about different mental disorders, their implications, and the research being done to find treatments. Through this, not only have I been able to better understand the nature of mental illness, but I've also become more aware of the stigma that is associated with it.

Our culture, quite sadly, undermines the reality of living with a mental disorder because it wrongly construes that illnesses of the mind are somehow more controllable than any physical illness. Furthemore, we belittle the effects of mental disorders by using words like "retarded", "bipolar", and "schizophrenic" as colloquialisms to put others down or descibe chaotic instances. IBPF strives to change this through care support, research, and education, which will work collectively to eliminate stigma and foster an environment that is more compassionate and understanding. 

While donations are much appreciated, I also urge all of you to take the time to understand mental illlness and the fact that it is not something that can be remedied purely by will power, but rather, as any illness, requires medication to remedy altered chemical balances. 

To get you started on your journey to understanding mental illness, here is a little bit about Bipolar Disorder:


Bipolar Disorder, specifically, is a mood disorder characterized by reoccurring periods of mania (high) and depression (low). Symptoms of mania may include racing thoughts, impulsive behavior, and hallucinations, while symptoms of depression can include feelings of loneliness, sadness, fatigue, and changes in both appetite and sleeping patterns.

Thank you, again, for taking the time to visit this page. By simply reading this, you are contributing to a greater cause!
