Circadian Instability and Mood: The Role of Appraisal Style

This series of studies is exploring how the stability of sleep and activity patterns influences mood in three populations: individuals with fibromyalgia, individuals diagnosed with bipolar disorder and non-clinical individuals.

We are particularly investigating how appraisal style acts as a mediator variable in the relationship between circadian stability and mood in all the three populations.

Participants will be asked to complete questionnaires assessing mood and appraisal style whilst also wearing a wristwatch which will record activity levels over a seven day period.

Get involved

We welcome interest from individuals who have experienced bipolar mood fluctuations, their relatives, friends, partners, carers as well as individuals who are interested in mental health research but have not experienced mental illness. Volunteers are vital for improving our understanding about the experience and management of Bipolar Disorder.
