About Bipolar India
Mr. Vijay Nallawala was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in 2003. After this happened, he struggled with gaining acceptance from society and also faced a lot of stigmas, due to the lack of awareness about this mental illness.
In May 2013, along with his friend and mentor Mr. Puneet Bhatnagar, Mr. Vijay Nallawala founded Bipolar India, probably India’s first online community set up for the Bipolar community.
They have now grown into a family where it is not just a support community, but a family. Each individual supports and motivates the other to be the best version of themselves and not let the diagnosis define them.
