Bipolar Research
The Bipolar and depression Research Program

The Bipolar and Depression Research Program is a clinical research program focused on treatment of individuals with bipolar and major depressive disorders directed by Dr. Trisha Suppes. It is located on the campus of the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, and affiliated with the VA and the Stanford School of Medicine. All studies are open to the general public as well as veterans and active duty military personnel. Our research focuses on Bipolar Disorder, including Bipolar Disorder that occurs with Generalized Anxiety Disorder or Life Time Panic Disorder, and Major Depressive Disorder. We have several current studies underway.

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a mood disorder characterized by significant swings between mania and depression, as well as changes in sleep patterns, energy, activity, attention and impulsivity. The exact cause of bipolar disorder is unknown, but is believed to be biological.

It can be difficult to detect early bipolar disorder, and the average time from symptom onset to correct diagnosis and treatment can take as long as 8-9 years.
