The Bipolar Express

Please support youth mental health!

The Bipolar Express is all about helping to end the isolation and stigma surrounding mental illness. We are friends, family and colleagues of team captain Beth Beattie who lived for years in fear that people would find out she has bipolar disorder. Two years ago Beth flew out of the mental illness closet, speaking openly about her illness and, in so doing, experienced a new found freedom. We want to do what we can to help others believe they too can share their stories and get the support they need.

The Bipolar Express is proud to participate for a third year in the CMHA’s annual fundraising event, Mental Health in Motion (formerly Ride Don’t Hide). We invite you to join the movement and show your support by becoming a member of the team or making a donation.


All of the funds raised will go towards supporting a wonderful and unique program for youth –MOBYSS. It is a youth walk-in clinic in the form of a bus that visits schools and youth shelters. On the bus are a nurse practitioner, mental health worker and peer counselor. Clients afraid to talk to doctors, parents, teachers, etc. are able to visit the clinic to get the help they need in a supportive environment. The clinic has literally saved lives. See below link to learn more.

Thank you!!
