Me and my dad in 1984. Note the maize and blue tie!
May 05, 2017
My father suffered from bipolar disorder and we lost him to it via suicide almost 30 years ago. I've recently moved back to Ann Arbor to work for U of M Development where I raise funds for the Prechter Bipolar Research Program. U of M has ground-breaking research underway.
Please contribute to support research that will allow effective, personalized treament for this terrible disease.
Every donation made during this campaign will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the World Heritage Foundation - Prechter Family Fund!
Bipolar disorder is a devastating, chronic mental illness with recurring episodes of mania (highs) and depression (lows) that can last from one day to many months.
The turmoil of bipolar disorder is often destructive to careers, personal and social relationships, and affects the whole person, family, and community. 30% of individuals with bipolar disorder will attempt suicide during their lives. However, the rate goes down dramatically with adequate treatment.
The Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Program is creating new hope for those who suffer from this complex illness. The Prechter Program is a premier research entity focused on personalizing treatment of bipolar disorder to prevent recurrences and to enable those living with bipolar disorder to lead healthy and productive lives.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Please make a gift today.
