All the questions and answers from our first #TalkBD event!

In alliance with Bell Let’s Talk Day 2019 on January 30, Network Lead Dr. Erin Michalak and members of the CREST.BD team took questions on all things BD on the CREST.BD Facebook page and Twitter using the hashtag #TalkBD.

The six-hour online conversation touched on a series of different topics, and featured contributions from our partners at the International Bipolar Foundation and UBC Psychology.

We’ve compiled all the questions and responses from this first #TalkBD event, and categorized them into different talking points here:

   Mental health support on campus


   Bipolar disorder research


   Self-management strategies


   Employers and bipolar disorder at the workplace


   Treatment and medication


   Disclosing diagnosis


   Suicide


   ADHD vs. BD
