BIPOLAR UK PARLIAMENTARY LAUNCH – BIPOLAR DIAGNOSIS MATTERS

“On Wednesday 27 October Bipolar UK hosted a parliamentary launch to present the early findings of the Bipolar Commission. A huge thank you to the 80 people who joined us to understand more about what bipolar is, what triggers it, how long it takes to get a diagnosis, the impact of a delay in diagnosis and the risks of living with the condition.”

Key findings we shared include:

*There’s an average delay of 9.5 years between someone first contacting a health professional about symptoms and getting an accurate diagnosis of bipolar
*60% of people say a delay in diagnosis of bipolar had a significant impact on their life
*84% of people say a diagnosis is helpful or very helpful
