Fry urges people to take part in bipolar study24th February 2010
Actor Stephen Fry is encouraging people with bipolar disorder to take part in research by Cardiff University into how genes can contribute to the illness.
He has taken part in the study, along with TV personality Kerry Katona but researchers need to double the number of the 3,000 volunteers who have so far donated DNA samples for analysis. Fry said volunteers would help "remove stigma, shame and hidden pain" of bipolar disorder, which refers to severe episodes of mood disturbance ranging from depression to elation.
