Northwestern's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is currently doing a research study to better understand bipolar disorder and develop better, more accessible treatments.
The purpose of the study is to see if using mobile technology will improve the treatment of bipolar disorder and help people better manage and reduce its symptoms.
The study includes participation for 12 months. You will be asked to carry a smartphone and wear a wristwatch-like device every day. You will be asked to complete a series of psychological and mood assessments. You may be asked to complete routine check-ins.
You may qualify to participate in the study if:
• You are 18-65 years old
• You have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder
• You are currently working with a psychiatrist.
Study participants will be compensated for their participation.
