Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition in which people experience both higher than normal mood (mania) and lower than normal mood (depression).

At this event Chris will talk about his personal experience of bipolar disorder, its episodic nature, and the effects of medical and psychological interventions. He will be joined by Lizzie, a clinical psychologist, who specialises in talking treatments for bipolar disorder and psychosis.

Together they reflect on the start, stop, and pauses of mood changes, and the start and stop of psychological interventions. How can such interventions be put into practice? Do the effects of such interventions ever really stop?
