If you have a parent with a bipolar disorder, you could help shape future support for families! Check out the research opportunity below from our friends at Bipolar UK!  


Lancaster University's Spectrum Centre and Bipolar UK are teaming up to understand the needs of adolescents whose parents have Bipolar Disorder. 

Groups of adolescents and parents are meeting with Spectrum’s researchers to explore & learn from their lived experiences, how to formulate and deliver the right support. Parents and adolescents will be given a £20 Amazon voucher to spend together in recognition of their time.


When: 12 October - 2 pm

Location: Central London or over phone/ zoom for those who can't make it into London. 


To register or to find out more, please email us on info@bipolaruk.org

Click the spoiler for privacy information: 

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.
