Kerry Katona

Television celebrity Kerry Katona is just one of the bipolar sufferers to volunteer for our research.

The former Atomic Kitten star and I’m a Celebrity…winner has had a long struggle with bipolar disorder, often in the public eye. Anxious to learn more about the disorder and to contribute to scientific research into its origins, she recently visited Cardiff University’s School of Medicine, where she was interviewed by Professor Nick Craddock about her experiences of mood disorder. He reassured her that many other bipolar sufferers have been through similar experiences and feelings to those she described. Her discoveries were shown on her latest MTV series.

Professor Craddock said: “Kerry had a real interest in learning more about bipolar and about the work we are doing here. We were very grateful to her – as we are to all our volunteers – for contributing to our search for the causes of this important and serious illness. There’s still a lot we don’t know about bipolar but I hope we were able to provide Kerry with some of the answers she was looking for.”
