We discuss Bipolar Disorder, the mental illness characterized by serious shifts in mood, alternating between extreme depression and elevated/agitated “mania”. Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre Nursing Officer Patrice Hall tells us about some of the warning signs and symptoms and the treatment options.
Also, we get details about Sandilands’ upcoming Push-a-thon/Walk-a-thon.

Registration is only $10, and can be done at the Geriatrics Hospital or the SRC Business Office, or you can contact the Sandilands PR Department at 364-9618.

And The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Dwight Armbrister tells us that each month, a different department within the ministry is being highlighted. For April, it’s his ‘Religious Tourism’ Department, and a “Golden Jubilee Concert” is planned. The event will feature some of the biggest Bahamian gospel acts from throughout the country. But it will also feature Grammy Award-winning American gospel artist Hezekiah Walker. Armbrister says this massive concert is FREE. It’s set for Clifford Park, Good Friday, April 18, at 7pm.
