Self-management is now recognized as an important part of bipolar disorder (BD) care in all major treatment guidelines, however, numerous barriers exist to accessing psychosocial services that can offer self-management information and support. Smartphone applications (apps) can enhance access to and delivery of self-management interventions. While a number of promising research-led app development projects have been initiated, they are not yet widely available. Interested users are therefore required to select from the >10,000 mental health apps available in the public app marketplace, which have noted limitations in terms of their credibility, efficacy, and privacy. Clinicians may play an important role in safeguarding individuals with BD from inappropriate apps. To support healthcare providers in identifying and evaluating apps to support self-management in BD, this webinar will review core components of BD self-management, the current state of apps for BD, and practical resources/strategies to navigate the public app marketplace.
