World Bipolar Day observed to sensitive people about disorder
Each year on March 30, World Bipolar Day is observed to spread awareness and encourage global education to enhance sensitivity surrounding bipolar disorder.

Jaipur celebrated World Bipolar Day with an exhibition at the psychiatry department of the SMS hospital. The posters in the exhibition depicted that early intervention with such people who frequently get maniac or get into depression suddenly can be helpful.

The exhibition was visited by students, teachers and doctors to get sensitised towards people with bipolar disorder.

It is said that about 2% of population world over experience bipolar situation through their lives and many have helped to get out of the condition. Some research even suggests that that could be about 5% people the bipolar spectrum, due changing life style leading to ever-exceeding social isolation.

According to Dr Anita Srivastava, a psychologist in the city, the bipolar disorder is a severe mental health illness and wellbeing problem characterised by significantly high mood swings including manic highs and depressive lows.

Many educators suggest that an education system wrought with controls, competitions, technology, externalizations and comforts is making both teachers and students show the symptoms of disrobers resulting in the incidents of suicides, sexual assaults and violence to the extent of mass killings.

 A student (anonymous) said that the unfair treatment by the school resulted into a stressful and sleeplessness nights, and signs of depression when his family took him to a psychiatrist, who diagnosed him a patient with bipolar disorder. "On Diwali, I fired rockets on the school to take revenge, laughed and bolted away," he said with a smirk.
