Kimberly Berry, founder of the website "Being UnNormal," recently interviewed one of our research area specialists, Erica Vest, LMSW for a podcast about "Managing Bipolar."

"In this episode we welcome Erica Vest-Wilcox from the Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Program on the show to talk about skills to help those diagnosed with bipolar disorder learn self-management techniques, which allows them to effectively manage their illness. Erica and I talk about things like triggers,  stigma, the differences between Bipolar 1 & 2,  understand your warning signs, and development of a personal care plan.

Erica also shares with us some of the latest research developments happening at the University including PRIORI, an app that helps individuals with bipolar self manage their symptoms."
