NAMI announced the release of a set of short videos online (most under two minutes) from their 2006 conference, on subjects related to bipolar disorder. hosts the videos, appropriate since most of them are from an interview with John McManamy, expert patient, who keeps a blog on that site as well as maintaining the excellent information resource McMan’s Depression and Bipolar Web.

Other videos feature Dr. Thomas Insel, Director of the National Institute of Mental Health, on subjects such as the role of clinical trials.

All topics are geared to people with bipolar disorders looking for basic information.

If you’re looking for something more advanced, try Bipolar Disorder and Neuroplasticity video, a UCLA Neuropsychiatry Institute Grand Rounds Lecture and CME with Dr. Husseini K. Manji. (Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to adapt and repair itself.) It’s about an hour long, and also requires RealPlayer.

Break out the popcorn!
