Stephen Fry Participation



Message from Stephen Fry

You may have seen Stephen Fry’s programme about bipolar disorder on BBC TV. He kindly participated in our research and wrote a short message for us to use on this website. (The photograph below is of Professor Nick Craddock and Stephen Fry).


“If you took time to participate in this study, you’ve no idea how much good you will be doing. It would be a wonderful, a kind, a graceful and a noble thing to do. So much good for so little effort. How you will glow. By choosing to assist one of the greatest problems facing human happiness you will have done your bit to help remove stigma, shame and hidden pain as well as hastening the day when we all understand the operations of mind and brain a little better. Thank you so very much on behalf of the untold millions you are helping.”
