Hi everyone! I am a student at Purdue Calumet and my topic for a project is bipolar disorder. In my podcast i talk about misdiagnosing bipolar and how many people have been misdiagnosed along with other statistics and how this is an issue in the medical field. I have attached a link to my page for where this info can be found. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can give me any kind of feed back. Thank You!
