As a former Brownie and Girl Scout, I am so excited to share the news about this Girl Scout patch. Bravo to the Girls Scouts and the International Bipolar Foundation!
With approximately 1 in 4 people in the U.S. diagnosed with a mental illness, awareness of those impacted is also growing.

This could be an opportunity for nurses with mental health challenges to help Girl Scouts earn patches. Nurses with mental health or other challenges challenges could also gain valuable volunteer experience.
