The Bipolar Disorder Society of BC had their 2nd annual general meeting on Monday, June 25th, 2012. People often ask what a general meeting is; well, it is a requirement of the province to keep our charitable status and more importantly it is a cause for celebration. Can you believe that the society has been around for 2 years already? It is amazing the leaps and bounds that it has crossed to date and all of the funding that we have garnered. We have huge expectations put on us for the Fall and at times I get a little nervous as things are growing at such a fast pace. I feel that at times I am expected to get all the classroom presentations lined up and I fear expressing my doubt and worry over such things. I'm am sure things will work out but it is daunting. I am often thought to have it all together and we are now expected to deliver results. We have a mental health tree (A tree handout for youth that will direct them to where they need to go for help) to produce and a video to tape that will train presenters across the province. Excited? Yes. Nervous? Just a tad. I love that I can be frank on this BLOG and tell you how I 'really' feel.
We also just started a new bipolar babes' women's group. We already have 11 participants! The demand is huge and seems to be growing. Soon enough I will be able to start a waiting list and eventually begin a new group. We have applied to the Victoria Foundation for funding as this is only a pilot project. I have no doubt that it will be successful.
Things are hopping on the babe front and we have you to really say thank you to. We appreciate your love and support and hope that we can continue to rely on you in the future.
