Functional impairment in the remission phase of BD. Bipolar Disorders, 7: 281–285. Little specific research in this area Existing evidence suggests: • link between BD depression and decreased care for your home • episodes of hypomania and mania can be associated with decreased ability to maintain home order and organization1
  7. 7. 7 Bipolar Wellness Center Webinars Connect. Learn. Engage.CREST.BD Why is home life important to QoL? Increased messiness in your home can be an early warning sign of a mood episode1 Can have downstream effects (e.g, may be less likely to receive visitors, reducing social contact, in itself a risk factor for BD episodes)2 1 Fagiolini, A., Kupfer, D.J., Masalehdan, A., Scott, J.A., Houck, P.R., Frank, E. (2005). Functional impairment in the remission phase of BD. Bipolar Disorders, 7: 281–285. 2 Johnson, S. L., Winett, C. A., Meyer, B., Greenhouse, W. J., & Miller, I. (1999).

  8. 8. 8 Bipolar Wellness Center Webinars Connect. Learn. Engage.CREST.BD Why is home life important to QoL? Some people with BD may experience OCD-type problems in their home lives: • obsessions (persistent thoughts, urges or images that feel intrusive and cause distress)3 • compulsions (excessive repetitive behaviours, e.g., handwashing, in response to an obsession or rigid rules)3 • hoarding (compulsion to buy unnecessary and fairly useless items that you’re later emotionally unable to get rid of)4 3 American Psychiatric Association. (2013). Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders (5th ed.). Arlington, VA: American Psychiatric Publishing. 4 Steketee, G., Frost, R. (2003). Compulsive hoarding: Current status of the research. Clinical Psychology Review, 23:905- 927. Page 910.
