How you can help create a new website for people with bipolar disorder

The views of people with experience of bipolar disorder are being sought by the makers of a new online information resource.

Partners involved in the project include the European Federation of Associations of Families of People with Mental Illness (EUFAMI) and the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH).

Perhaps you have been recently diagnosed with bipolar, or have lived with the condition for some time, or maybe you care for someone with bipolar – whatever your experience of bipolar, the team behind the new website wants to hear from you.

A spokesperson for PatientView, the company in charge of the online survey, said: “The aim of this project is to obtain expertise to help create a global website for people living with bipolar. The intention is that the website will be designed by people with bipolar themselves.

“The survey hopes to find out three things: first, what people with bipolar think are the most important types of healthcare information for them. Secondly, we’d like to hear about any other key subjects of importance to people with bipolar and their carers. And thirdly, we’d like to know what people with bipolar think sets them apart from people with other mental health conditions.

“The survey is completely anonymous and should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete.”
