Virtual Forum: The Interplay Between Sleep & Bipolar Disorder
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: Sleep can be disrupted in all stages of bipolar disorder, including in euthymic patients, and may be a predictor of relapse. There is growing evidence that sleep disruption can affect many aspects of a patient's life, like mood, quality of life, and mood episode recurrence.
In this Virtual Forum, hear from Terence Ketter, MD, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences and Founding Chief of the Bipolar Disorders Clinic at Stanford University; and Holly Swartz, MD, Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh, Director of the Center for Advanced Psychotherapy, and Medical Director of the Depression & Manic Depression Prevention Program. Speakers will discuss their perspectives on sleep disruption in patients with bipolar disorder, and potential interventions aimed at improving sleep.
