Professor Lisa Jones and Professor Ian Jones were delighted to talk about bipolar disorder and the work of BDRN at the Hay Festival in June of this year. We are very grateful to Clare Dolman, Vice Chair of Bipolar UK, who joined them on stage to talk about her own experiences of bipolar disorder. The Hay Festival is one of the world’s foremost annual literary festivals – it takes place in the beautiful market town of Hay-on-Wye on the England/Wales border every spring and is well worth a visit.
Professor Lisa Jones said “Speaking at the Hay Festival was a wonderful opportunity to be able to speak to the public about mood disorders. The audience was very keen to know more judging by the number of questions – if only there had been more time to answer them all. We ended our presentation with a big public thank you to all of our BDRN participants from all over the UK”.
BDRN would like to thank the University of Worcester for sponsoring their Hay Festival presentation.
