At CREST.BD, we undertake action-oriented research with a high potential for impact on the health, quality of life and care of people with bipolar disorder.

We create and advance knowledge and understanding of bipolar disorder to contribute to optimal health and quality of life through the discovery, dissemination and application of research.


Stay up to date with research and knowledge exchange on bipolar disorder.

COVID-19 and daily routines: The experience of people with mood disorders

Many governments have instituted social distancing and social isolation measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This has many people to experience changes in their normal and structured social routines of work, study and other lifestyle activities. We want to understand the challenges individuals diagnosed with mood disorders face, particularly with respect to their social rhythms during a time of restricted socialising and modified daily routines.

We are looking for people who:
• Have received a diagnosis of depression or bipolar disorder
• Are aged 18-65
• Are fluent in English

Participation involves:
• Completing a brief online survey (which will take 20-30 minutes)
• You will be asked some basic information about yourself, your current mood symptoms, stress, social rhythmicity and sleep
