Program Details: Open to the public

Colorado Family Project

The Colorado Family Project, a group of clinicians and researchers at the University of Colorado, is conducting a study of family-based therapy for youth ages 9-17 who have mood swings and a second or first degree relative with bipolar disorder.

Treatment focuses on helping children and their families understand and cope with mood swings, develop plans for preventing moods from getting worse, communicate more effectively, and solve family problems. Treatment and psychiatric consultation are free of charge, and families are compensated for participation in a full diagnostic assessment and regular research interviews.

More information regarding the program can be found at the program's website, below.
