You’re invited: ‘Living Well with Bipolar Disorder’ seminar

January 13, 2023  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

The Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Program is hosting a webinar on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. entitled, “Living Well with Bipolar Disorder.” 

The webinar is free to attend and will be a roundtable discussion focusing on wellness and bipolar disorder. A team of researchers, clinicians and Prechter Program participants will discuss what wellness means when living with bipolar disorder, how individual lived experiences shape wellness and how research plays a role in establishing wellness. 

Sarah Sperry, Ph.D., a researcher in the Prechter Program and clinical psychologist in the Bipolar Clinic at Michigan Medicine, will speak about the importance of measuring well-being as an outcome in clinical care and research studies. She will discuss current research that highlights the need to redefine well-being, or, what it means to be living well with bipolar disorder. Sperry will end by introducing an important new initiative of the Prechter Program, the development of new tools to measure well-being, incorporating the perspective and voices of those with lived experience.
