The talkBD Bipolar Disorder Podcast gathers researchers, people with lived experience, healthcare providers, and top bipolar disorder experts from around the world to discuss and answer the most important questions about living with bipolar disorder. Since our first episode during initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, talkBD has continued to generate substantial interest and engagement, making it one of the top resources for people living with bipolar disorder and their loved ones.

talkBD is produced by international bipolar disorder research network CREST.BD: the Collaborative RESearch Team to study psychosocial issues in Bipolar Disorder. ( crestbd.ca)

The format

We’ve designed each episode to provide education on strategies to live well with bipolar disorder and provide tools and resources for each topic. All talkBD episodes also feature Q&A segments where our experts answer viewer submitted questions. See our full list of talkBD experts.
