Online parenting programmes for parents with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder

Professor Rachel Calam is working with Professor Steven Jones from the Spectrum Centre for Mental Health Research, Lancaster University, to support a study exploring parenting with bipolar disorder. The study is looking at an online package that includes positive parenting techniques as well as some strategies that are helpful for self-management of bipolar-related difficulties. The main aims of the study are to find out how well this package works and if people who use it find it helpful.
