Mental health professionals with UT Medicine San Antonio and collaborating institutions are designing bipolar disorder treatments that will be relevant and culturally sensitive to Hispanics, thanks to a $3.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health. “We will test for specific cultural factors that affect the response and engagement of Hispanics who have bipolar disorder,” said Charles L. Bowden, M.D., principal investigator of the study. Dr. Bowden leads a large group of experienced psychiatrists, psychologists and other scientists who will conduct the comprehensive program of research during the next five years.
