Tragedy struck the family of Heinz C. Prechter on July 6, 2001. The legendary business leader fell victim to suicide after battling intermittent bouts of bipolar disorder for most of his adult life. He was only 59 years old.
Two children lost their caring father. A wife lost her loving husband. But we all lost a great friend and limitless opportunities never to be realized.

The International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF) is currently competing for a $5,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project during the month of January. The winners will be decided by popular vote. IBPF needs your three votes every day during the month of January.
Less than a minute of your day can help us further educate the public about Bipolar Disorder.
IBPF will use the grant to print and distribute a book on “Healthy Living with Bipolar Disorder” which will educate and raise public awareness about the disorder.
