Seminar Description

What is bipolar disorder (manic depression), what are the symptoms and how is it diagnosed? How many people have bipolar disorder and how do we know this? Are there risks for developing other disorders and what is important for patients to look out for? What is known about the causes and the factors that affect the course of the disorder? How family members and spouses are affected and what is their role in the course of the disorder? What is the role of psychiatrist, psychologist and other health professionals in the treatment and management of the disorder? What are the most effective treatments and what are some useful ways of self-management of bipolar disorder? What remains to be learned about the disorder and its treatment and what are we going to see in the future?

These and many other questions about bipolar disorder will be covered in the first introductory seminar of BipolarLab. The seminar will cover the latest knowledge and findings for bipolar disorder from the field of psychiatry and clinical psychology. It will be a very good introduction to Bipolar disorder simplified for patients, relatives and friends. The content of the seminar is based on Dr Yanni Malliaris Bipolar Disorder Masterclass which was created for professionals and students, and has been taught to top clinical psychology and medical undergraduates at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London.

Each seminar will have a small number of participants (maximum 7 people) to allow time for the questions of each participant. The seminar is also provided through an individual consultation session for participants who wish to have more privacy and more time for all their questions.

1. Learn how exercise and nutrition can protect your emotional mental health.
2. Discover your level of physical activity and your nutritional profile.
3. Learn about BipolarLab’s Exercise and Nutrition eSupport programme.

 

Webinar Description

The webinar "Bipolar & Fit: Exercise, Nutrition and Emotional Health" approaches our emotional health from an often neglected route that of physical health and dietary lifestyle. Nevertheless, as it is shown by recent studies both such areas are clinically significant for maintaining a good emotional health. The sedentary lifestyle, poor eating habits and obesity that is sweeping the last decades of modern societies have become "enemies" of our mental and physical health. They are often characteristic of people who have mood disorders.

In this webinar as a participant you will have the opportunity to learn about the significance of physical activity, good dietary habits and body weight regulation in bipolar disorder (manic depression) and depression. You will also discover why mental health disorders are often associated with chronic physical ailments and learn simple techniques to improve your mental and physical health through lifestyle changes. You will be given the opportunity to consider the level of your physical activity and discover your nutritional profile.

Finally you will learn about BipolarLab’s Exercise and Nutrition eSupport programme and have the opportunity to ask questions and sign up.

Each webinar has a small number of participants (maximum 7 people) to allow time for questions for all members.
