International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF), formerly known as California Bipolar Foundation, was founded in June 2007 in San Diego, California by four parents with children affected by bipolar disorder. Well aware of the trauma that bipolar disorder causes for consumers and their families, these parents felt compelled to do something constructive to help.

The mission of International Bipolar Foundation is to improve understanding and treatment of bipolar disorder through research; to promote care and support resources for individuals and caregivers; and to erase stigma through education.


Wild Willow Farm & Education Center is a six-acre working farm located in the southwest corner of the United States, less than three miles from the Pacific Ocean and two-thirds mile north of the Mexican Border.

Wild Willow Farm is now in its fourth year of developing a farm and growing food while educating local citizenry about sustainable farming, permaculture and how to live sustainably in our region. The farm continues to evolve rapidly both on and off the ground. We grow food, educate and train, promote community, help people, produce, encourage and participate, promote and support.


The Soliders Project provides a safety net of psychological services for military service members and their loved ones, and to educate the general public on how the psychological consequences of war affect both those who serve and their loved ones at home.

The future of veterans mental health is now. Your donation furthers our ability to reach out to those living in areas with little to no services available for them. We want to expand our reach so that no veteran, military spouse, child, or loved one is left without help when they need it most.
