About the app
Funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and philanthropic support from the Daymark Foundation, PolarUs represents the culmination of a decade of work by CREST.BD. PolarUs was birthed out of a need for an integrated digital mental health space to support the health and quality of life of individuals living with bipolar disorder. The app does just that, by providing users with self-management strategies and digital resources as well as highlighting the interaction between their personal self-management behaviors and their quality of life. This app was built for people with bipolar disorder, by people with bipolar disorder along with researchers and health care providers.
