Event Overview
Welcome message:

Bipolar disorder is a severe and debilitating mental illness, which has in the past decade started to receive the necessary attention from societies, researchers, practitioners, government, and private funding agencies. In response to the need for further awareness, education and research on this severe mental illness, the International Society for Bipolar Disorders (ISBD) was created.

The ISBD is growing in membership with an elected board representing 15 countries and a membership representing 44 countries. The ISBD is a major source for emerging research and clinical data on bipolar disorders and is the only bipolar focused, research-oriented Society working to bring this data to patients, families and other mental health professionals working on the front lines of bipolar care.

The ISBD currently offers psychiatric trainees an opportunity to develop as researchers in the field of bipolar disorders through the Samuel Gershon Junior Investigator Awards, a prestigious award named in honor of the ISBD Past President and early pioneer of lithium research and through young researcher Travel Awards. In addition to its work to support bipolar education among trainees, fellows and young investigators, the ISBD is also moving the field forward through the development of task forces in the areas of prodromes, suicide, transcultural issues, antidepressants, bipolar offspring, psychosocial interventions, and bipolar disorder in special populations (child, late life and women's health).

Bipolar Disorders – An International Journal of Psychiatry and Neurosciences, which is the official journal of the Society, received its 2012 impact factor of 4.621, ranking it 20 out of 251 rated psychiatric journals.
