The mission of International Bipolar Foundation is to improve understanding and treatment of bipolar disorder through research; to promote care and support resources for individuals and caregivers; and to erase stigma through education.
International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF), formerly known as California Bipolar Foundation, was founded in June 2007 in San Diego, California by four parents with children affected by bipolar disorder. Well aware of the trauma that bipolar disorder causes for consumers and their families, these parents felt compelled to do something constructive to help.
IBPF is made up of a founding Executive Committee, a Scientific Advisory Board, Honorary Board, Advisory Council and a Consumer Advisory Council. Agency committees include the Finance Committee, Marketing Committee, Development Committee, Governance Committee and Programs Committee.
