Recently YABI was contacted by the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre/Brain and Psychological Sciences Research Centre at Swinburne University for support with their clinical study into bipolar disorder. At YABI, we believe it’s important that such studies are conducted to investigate causes of the disorder to ultimately find the best treatments possible to lead to a better life quality.
