The World Bipolar Day and Substance Use Disorder

March 30 is World Bipolar Day. A 2016 SAMHSA Advisory reports that rates of SUD are high among people with bipolar disorder. Research suggests that from 30%-50% of people with bipolar disorder will develop a SUD. On March 30, the organizers of World Bipolar Day encourage those with social media accounts to share the hashtags listed on the website to increase awareness of bipolar disorder.
