The Sutherland Bipolar Center and RDS Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of people with bipolar disorder, the family and friends who support them, and the community in which they live. We offer diagnostic evaluations, personalized treatment programs, individual, family and/or group therapy and education. We focus on serving those who don’t have the financial means to get help anywhere else. With our sliding scale fees, clients often pay only $20 per week; some pay nothing at all. But our clinic is 100% donor-funded, so we can’t offer these services without your financial gifts. Thankfully, our partnership with CU Boulder provides low overhead since the Center is housed on campus.
In addition to client services, the Center Director, a licensed psychologist with over 15 years’ experience treating mood disorders, teaches an eight-part seminar on bipolar disorder that is free and open to the public. She also mentors advanced doctoral students in the specialized treatment of bipolar disorder.
We are the only clinic of its kind in the country that offers comprehensive services to people with bipolar disorder regardless of their ability to pay. Since 2002, we have helped over 1,500 people impacted by the illness. We believe that people with bipolar disorder can thrive given the right treatment and thorough education.
“I wish I knew about you 10 years earlier—my life would have been profoundly different… a much different trajectory. In the past 3 years, I’ve come back to life.” – Sutherland Bipolar Center Client
