Bipolar Disorder Research

Join our bipolar research community
The National Centre for Mental Health (NCMH) and Bipolar UK are working together to reach out to people with lived experience of bipolar. We hope to build a collaborative research community dedicated to increasing understanding of bipolar; its causes, triggers, and how best to manage the condition.
One factor holding back mental health research is the lack of ‘registries’, where people indicate their willingness to be contacted about being involved in future research studies.
While registries are now standard practice for conditions like cancer or diabetes, for mental health conditions like bipolar, they are much less common. We are missing a resource which could be key in enabling bipolar research.
How you can help
Please join us, so that together we can make a difference. Signing up to the National Centre for Mental Health study will enable us to build a community dedicated to research and able to be contacted with further research opportunities.
The NCMH project is for all mental health conditions but the information you give will allow us to approach those with lived experience of bipolar disorder for further specific research opportunities.
Signing up takes around 10-15 minutes online. All you need to do is provide some very straightforward information.
You will be helping to create a network which has enormous potential for improving the lives of people with bipolar. Visit the NCMH website to find out more.
NCMH research participant
"I’m keen to contribute to this research however I can to highlight bipolar disorder and help to improve understanding of the condition.
"It’s an empowering experience and I’d recommend taking part however you can. If by taking part in the research and sharing my story, I can help just one other person it will be worth it."
Dr Tania Gergel
Director of Research, Bipolar UK
"As someone who's both living with and leading research into bipolar, I cannot understand how so little research is devoted to a condition estimated to affect at least 1-2% of the world population.
"To improve outcomes for bipolar we urgently need more research which addresses the needs of the bipolar community. Please join us in taking a step towards achieving this aim."
