Bipolar Disorder App Study

If you are above 18, have a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, and live in North America, be the first one to try the PolarUs app!

Participate in a study!

The CREST.BD research network has just launched a research study evaluating the impact of a new app for bipolar disorder – PolarUs.

The first of its kind, the PolarUs app helps people with bipolar disorder to measure and monitor their quality of life and apply science-based self-management strategies, with the goal of guiding them towards health and quality of life.

Funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and philanthropic support from the Daymark Foundation, PolarUs represents the culmination of a decade of work by CREST.BD.
