“I believe in kindness and compassion. I believe that all people have a right to be heard. I believe that recovery is always possible. And I believe that happiness is not a destination, it is the journey.”

– Nellie Russell, Founder + CEO

From Humble Beginnings to International Outreach

In June 2008, founder Nellie Russell began blogging publically about her struggles with bipolar disorder. From that point, Bipolar Out Loud was born. Over the years, the site transformed from a personal blog into a community of mental health warriors fighting to end the stigma of mental illness and create an atmosphere of hope and healing for those who were struggling with mental health. With the exponential growth we’ve seen over the years, our team decided it was time to end the seven year run with Bipolar Out Loud and expand our reach beyond the bipolar and mental health communities. Our dream has always been to touch hearts, inspire hope, and change lives. Adalmar Life International is that dream becoming a reality. If you’re coming to us from Bipolar Out Loud or Lifelong Wellness Coaching, welcome! This is our new home! Please take a few minutes to look around and be sure to stop by the blog for weekly content on health, happiness, and holistic living!

Wishing you good health and happiness,

The Adalmar Life Team
