About this webinar
Youth bipolar disorder is a complicated and frequently misunderstood condition. Multiple factors contribute to the complexity of bipolar disorder in youth, including co-occurring psychiatric illnesses, developmental considerations during adolescence, and stigma toward youth and child bipolar disorder.
This webinar is the first in a series, led by the Knowledge Mobilization team in CAMH's Provincial System Support Program (KMb-PSSP) and the Centre for Youth Bipolar Disorder (CYBD). The overarching goal of this series is to provide reliable and up-to-date information regarding youth bipolar disorder that is relevant to affected youth and their families. We seek to demystify and destigmatize youth bipolar disorder through this knowledge-sharing event.
Date: Wednesday, October 11, 2023
Time: 6:00 PM (EDT)
After attending this webinar you will:
- recognize the prevalence, characteristics and course of bipolar disorder in youth
- consider similarities and differences between bipolar disorder in youth versus adults
- understand key advances in knowledge from the past 20 years, and remaining gaps that need to be addressed.
Future webinars will focus on specific themes, such as treatment and family factors. If you have any requests and suggestions for topics to be covered in the future, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
