How to take part in our research
We would like to hear from individuals who have experienced one or more episodes of high mood (often called mania, hypomania or bipolar disorder) at any time during their life.
What Does Taking Part Involve?
A researcher will usually visit you in your own home and will spend around one hour
asking you about your experiences and the kinds of symptoms you have had in the past.
They will leave you with a pack of questionnaires for you to complete and return to the research team in the SAE.
The questionnaire pack will take between ½ hour and an hour to complete.
They will take a small blood sample from your arm.
You will receive updates about the progress of the research
in our annual newsletter that we send to all participants.
Any information you give us is in strict confidence
Although you will not benefit from taking part, your participation will
contribute to an improved understanding of mood disorders in the future.
There are many calls and causes in life as a bipolar sufferer
Partaking in the BDRN study is the one “must do” this year.
It will help our children and our children’s, children…….
Thank you for helping.
