San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
Healthline Networks, the fastest-growing provider of intelligent online health information services, has announced an exclusive opportunity for people with bipolar disorder, their families and loved ones to ask direct questions and get reliable answers for free via the Internet. Bipolar disorder affects more than 5.7 million adults annually with symptoms that include wide mood swings, from extreme highs and euphoria, to extreme lows and deep depression.
People who suffer from bipolar disorder and other mental illness often turn to the web for answers because they can remain anonymous while searching online for sensitive information. However, information sources discovered that random Internet searches may not be reliable, and with so many resources available online, it can be difficult to find relevant and meaningful answers to specific personal questions. To address this issue, Healthline has teamed up with Dr. Robert Dobrenski, a clinical psychologist and expert on bipolar disorder. Dr. Dobrenski will be available to address participants’ concerns via a live question and answer session on Monday, Oct. 24 at 2 p.m. EST (11 a.m. PST). The session will last for 20-30 minutes and questions will be taken during the event in real time or may be submitted to Dr. Dobrenski in advance. All questions will be confidential.
Dr. Dobrenski is a clinical psychologist who has a doctorate degree from the University of Toledo. He completed postdoctoral work at Cornell Medical Center/New York hospital in 2002. Author of a book published earlier this year, Crazy: Notes On and Off the Couch, Dr. Dobrenski offers an insightful, honest look into the daily life of a psychologist. He also publishes a blog, ShrinkTalk.Net, which was launched in 2007 to debunk the myths and stigmas associated with mental health issues, and address mental health topics in an accessible, lighthearted way. His work has also been published in Best of Creative Nonfiction, Volume 2.
