Purpose of Study
The purpose of this research is to find out if an educational and behavioral intervention, called Customized Adherence Enhancement for Adolescents and Young Adults (CAEAYA), helps patients with taking their medication and missing fewer doses compared to a standard educational program about bipolar disorder.
We expect participants to be in this research study for about 6 months. During that time participants will be asked to complete 5 study assessment visits and 5 educational session visits (4 over 4-6 weeks and then one more about 4 weeks later). Members of the study staff will also call participants about 2 weeks after the fourth educational session.
Who Can Participate
Participants between 14 -21 years of age who are diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and have missed some doses of their medication in the past week or month may be eligible for this study.
