**CLOSED** Support Patient-Centered Product Development for the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance!

by member 107

The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) and the Milken Institute Center for Strategic Philanthropy have launched the first-of-its-kind “Supporting Wellness” survey of lived experience and research priorities for depression and bipolar. This 19-item (anonymous) survey was carefully crafted with help from a design group comprised of volunteers living with depression and/or bipolar and tested by a group of volunteers, including Savvy members!

Survey results will be used to support patient-centered development of new medical products and care, as well as to influence research funders to support research that reflects the community’s top priorities. The individual viewpoints you express will be just as important as the combined weight of the community’s shared priorities.

Please share the survey link ( freely with friends, family members, and others who share an interest in more and better options for people living with depression and/or bipolar.

Please raise your hand and help us make this survey response as strong as it can be!
