We are delighted that several BBC radio stations in the West Midlands recently helped to raise awareness about bipolar disorder by covering the topic live on air. These included BBC Hereford and Worcester and BBC Shropshire. The story was also covered on BBC Midlands Today breakfast television programme.
We are especially grateful to one of our BDRN research champions, Mike Spiers, for discussing his own lived experiences of bipolar disorder. You can hear Mike’s interview here:
You can listen to BDRN’s Professor Lisa Jones discussing BDRN’s research on gambling and bipolar disorder here:
