Wally's Fight to Cure Bipolar Disorder

This video looks at the cost of bipolar disorder and reveals some of the exciting research initiatives underway at the University of Michigan’s Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Fund. In 2001, when she began her fight to find a cure for bipolar disorder, Waltraud "Wally" Prechter did it to honor her husband Heinz and to save her daughter. After more than ten years of fighting, and having started the fund that supports the world's most ambitious research into bipolar disorder, Wally's enormous contribution has brought us to a place where we are finally beginning to see important progress.
