But, let's be mindful about what photos we post. Selfies are fine! Most of our organizing team is fine with our photos being taken for social media, just ask us first. Please don't post photos of other participants unless they ask you to, or you ask them and get a YES! Just ASK and then share away! :)

11:30 to 11:40 - WELCOME

We'd like to introduce ourselves, especially our Youth Action Group.

our research priorities

1) Quality of life

2) Stigma

3) Psychological treatments and self-management

Self-management strategies are "wide ranges of plans and/or routines and activities that a person with bipolar disorder uses to promote health and quality of life. Healthcare providers, friends, family or caregivers can be involved in developing strategies and supporting their use. Outside of hospital settings, it is typically the person with BD who chooses, enacts their self-management approach and tailors self-management strategies."
