The Collaborative RESearch Team to Study Psychosocial Issues in Bipolar Disorder (CREST.BD, http://www.crestbd.ca) is a team of researchers, clinicians, and community members dedicated to developing knowledge on bipolar disorder (BD). The international team includes representatives from a variety of health disciplines, including psychology, psychiatry, occupational therapy, nursing, genetic counseling, and mental health advocacy. A guiding principle of CREST.BD is to foster and promote community-based research, whereby individuals with BD and their family members are active participants in research and knowledge exchange. Team members Raymond Lam and Lakshmi Yatham, Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, and Sheri Johnson, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley, provided access to patients at their respective sites for the psychometric phases of this project. The CREST.BD Community Consultation Group (a cohort of approximately 100 individuals with BD living in British Columbia, Canada) was actively involved in all stages of data collection for this project.
