2020 Newsletter & Impact Report

View a PDF of this year's overview of the Prechter Bipolar Research Program's work


"We are now several months into the COVID-19 era. Life has changed for all of us. There is an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ feeling of uncertainty as we follow the news on several fronts. How many times have we heard our inner voice proclaim, “this is unbelievable…?”

We have been thrust into a journey that limits our ability to personally move about the world yet provides the opportunity to ‘travel’ and meet through virtual connections. Our colleagues, friends, and families are electronic representations on a screen. We see the world from inside our homes; we live with online shadows of our previous lives.

For Alice, the journey down the rabbit hole represented adventure and finding new meaning. So it goes with the Prechter team. We have opportunities to do things differently, often better, and unexpected time to analyze our data and ponder how to meet our goals."
