- The origin of The Stigma-Free Society. Did you know that this charity has a true grassroots history? The project was first ignited by Andrea, who created a Bipolar Babe t-shirt and website to share her personal experience with bipolar disorder, so others did not have to suffer in silence like she once did. Listen in as Andrea shares this neat origin story.
