The Bipolar Spectrum Diagnostic Scale (BSDS) is rapidly becoming a gold standard screening tool in bipolar depression.

This short 9-minute, learner-friendly video is designed to introduce the BSDS and get you ready to use it today. The creator and narrator of this video is Saundra Jain, MA, PsyD, LPC, a Psych Congress Steering Committee member.
