Lancaster University Spectrum Centre intention is to collect views of life with a parent with bipolar, and this would form part of the researchers public/patient information, and our knowledge, which would be used during the development and planning for the research, to help direct the development.  The information from the research will be anonymised, however, will be audio recorded where practical, and notes taken during the meeting.  With only the number of people being interviewed, age, and any diagnosed conditions of their parents (also anonymised) being used. Consent to participate will be asked.
