About CREST.BD

The Collaborative Research Team to study psychosocial issues in Bipolar Disorder (CREST.BD) is a multidisciplinary collaborative network of researchers, healthcare providers and community members (people living with bipolar disorder, their family members and supports) dedicated to researching and exchanging knowledge about psychological and social factors in bipolar disorder. Our aim is to enhance the health and wellness of people living with the condition.
