Mood Disorder Research Studies
Our research at Cardiff University is undertaken in close collaboration with our colleagues at Birmingham University (led by Dr Lisa Jones). Members of our team are based in both centres.
Bipolar Disorder Study
Over 2000 people have already participated in our Bipolar Disorder Study and it is now the largest such study anywhere in the world. We are, however, still looking for more volunteers to help us with our research - every additional person who helps will bring the possibility of much-needed scientific advances nearer. If you suffer with bipolar disorder and would like to help by participating in our research, please contact us (see contact details at the bottom of this page).
Schizophrenia/ Bipolar Disorder Study
We are studying the relationship between psychosis and mood disorder. This will improve diagnosis. We are looking for individuals who may have received varying diagnoses of both bipolar disorder and schizophrenia (or schizoaffective disorder) at some time during their illness. If this applies to you and you would like to help by participating in our research, please contact us (see contact details at the bottom of this page).
Episodes of Mood Illness in Relation to Childbirth
Childbirth often triggers a severe episode of illness in a woman with bipolar disorder (this may be called “puerperal psychosis” or “postpartum psychosis”). We are investigating the strong link between mood disorder and childbirth. We are keen to hear from women with bipolar disorder who have experienced episodes of mood disorder in relation to childbirth. If this applies to you and you want to help by participating in our study, please contact us (see contact details below).
If you would like more information or are interested in participating in any of the above studies, please contact us.
