Bipolar Youth Action Project: Mindfulness Video

In our Bipolar Youth Action Project (BYAP) we asked youth living with bipolar disorder: What self-management strategies are effective for young people with bipolar disorder?  BYAP participants described the diverse techniques that they found effective for keeping balance in mood, stopping a slide into depression, or stopping escalation into hypomania or mania. Many of the “in the moment” strategies described by our youth participants borrowed from mindfulness-based techniques.


In this short video, we share BYAP participants’ tips for incorporating mindfulness approaches into everyday life with bipolar disorder.

This project and production of this video were made possible by funding from the Vancouver Foundation.
