SALFORD BIPOLAR DRINKERS NEEDED
 

Star date: 22nd January 2012

ABLE TO DRINK WITH BIPOLAR?

Mental health trusts and universities have launched a huge research programme called Able, which stands for Assessing Bipolar Lifestyle Experiences, to study psychological approaches to the bipolar disorder.

As part of this they are looking for Salford people with the condition who also drink alcohol in any amount.

See here for further details…


The Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust, together with Nottingham and Manchester Universities have launched a five year research programme called ABLE - Assessing Bipolar Lifestyle Experiences – which will focus on `the development, evaluation and implementation of psychological approaches to bipolar disorder and related problems'.

As part of the study, they are looking for people over 18 with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder who are in contact with mental health services, and who also drink alcohol, to take part in the research. The amount of alcohol drank doesn't matter – it could be buckets full of ale or occasional glasses of wine. The study is testing the effectiveness of a new psychological therapy delivered by a trained psychological therapist.

Participants will be randomly allocated to receive either the intervention, or their usual treatment. Those receiving the intervention will receive regular one to one therapy sessions with a clinical psychologist over a period of six months. All sessions will be delivered at the individual's home, or another place they feel comfortable.

"This is an exciting opportunity for people in Salford to be involved in a large scale research project, the results of which may be used to inform future treatment of Bipolar Disorder within the NHS" says Assistant Trial Manager Rebecca Owen

"We really want to find individuals in Salford who might benefit from new therapies such as this" she adds "They can get in touch and take part if they would like to…"

Anyone who would like to take part in ABLE can get in touch with Rebecca Owen, Assistant Trial Manager, Parades ABLE, Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust…
