It’s been a while since I’ve been on WP, I think I lost my writing mojo. I don’t know if this will be a one of post or the start of me getting more active on here again. Watch this space…or don’t, as I might not be on here again for some time 🙂
I’m doing ok right now…sooooo you know….that’s nice.
Anywhoozles the reason for this post. I got an email recently (pasted below) from the Spectrum Centre at Lancaster University regarding Bipolar Research. I’m taking part in it & thought it’d be a good idea to put the contact details on here in case any of you would like to take part.
Just email Barbara & let her know you would like to take part. I got a response the day after, so good luck.
I don’t know if this is for UK based people only, but if you’re an overseas Bipolarian (hmmm have I just invented a new word) contact Barbara anyway, as it might be an all inclusive kinda deal.
Hope you’re all doing well…if not keep up the fight.
I’m not used to this new WP layout & I can’t even see where my notification & comments section is! For anyone who has commented, I’m not ignoring you, just ummmm trying to figure out where everything is 🙂

Dear Spectrum Connect Member,
I am Barbara Mezes, a PhD student at the Spectrum Centre for Mental Health Research and I would like to invite people with bipolar disorder to take part in a research exploring personal recovery experiences. We are aiming to better understand the personal recovery experiences of people with bipolar disorder– not only clinical aspects, but also other improvements such as being able to enjoy social activities, get back into employment and having more control over your life. The study is exploring the different thinking styles, behaviours, activities and environmental factors, which can influence your recovery experiences, both long-term and in everyday life.
There are three phases of this study. Some phases of the study involve taking part in interviews and completing questionnaires, whilst others involve keeping a diary. It is up to you which phase(s) you would like to take part in, but we can discuss these in more detail before you decide to participate.
If you have diagnosis of bipolar disorder and would like to take part or find out more about the study, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Telephone: 01524 592622 or 0789 6939879
