Bipolar disorder is a serious mental disorder that disrupts the emotional and social lives of people who suffer from it.

Patients with bipolar disorder experience intense periods of mania, where they tend to feel over optimistic or even grandiose, and often become overly social or even inappropriate in their contact with other people. This is something they usually regret and feel ashamed of later, but they have little control over their behavior when they are manic. They also tend to experience periods of depression, where they become withdrawn and isolate themselves. When they do not experience a mood episode, they tend to be fairly well and very likable and cherish the friendship of others, but the effects of their previous episodes persist. The mood episodes disrupt their social lives, and as a result they are often isolated. The lack of a supportive network of friends makes their lives even more difficult to bear, increases their risk to become unwell again, and delays their recovery.

Our BipolarLab eBuddy program aims to develop a network of BipolarLab eBuddies who will volunteer their time to befriend at least one bipolar patient who will be undergoing supervised treatment by a BipolarLab professional.

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we announce our forthcoming workshop with Professor Carl Lejuez that will take place on the 17th of March 2012 in Athens, Greece.

Professor Carl Lejuez is one of the leading clinical psychologists in the field of Behavior therapy for Mood disorders and has agreed to visit Greece to deliver an intensive workshop on the application of Behavior Activation Therapy for the treatment of Mood disorders. I will also present my work on the application of this therapeutic model for the treatment of Bipolar depression.

Behavior Activation Therapy is the most effective treatment for unipolar depression and holds great promise for the treatment of bipolar depression. It is now more than ever that we need evidence based and effective psychotherapeutic treatments for the treatment of mood disorders.

Please note that thanks to Professor Lejuez we have a very low attendance fee that we hope will enable the participation of all interested colleagues and students. Please read below for further information about the workshop. http://edoba.bipolar.gr

We welcome participants from all over the world. Visiting Greece at this time of the year would be a delightful experience despite all the negative press about the impending Greek doom.

I am looking forward to seeing you all there.

With best wishes,

Dr Yanni Malliaris
