On Bell Let’s Talk Day 2020 – January 29th – CREST.BD network members Dr. Erin Michalak, Dr. Rob Tarzwell, Stéphanie Fontaine, Ryan Tine, Dr. Emma Morton, and Catherine Simmons took to Twitter for CREST.BD’s second #TalkBD event. Twitter users submitted a variety of questions about BD, which the team answered from both a lived experience perspective, and the perspective of medical professionals and researchers.
We’ve compiled all the questions and responses from the both this year’s #TalkBD event, as well as 2019’s, and categorized them into different talking points. Last year’s conversations also featured contributions from our partners at the International Bipolar Foundation and UBC Psychology.
