ACCESSIBLE SUMMARY: Existing evidence suggest that patient education in promoting self-management strategies of bipolar disorder (BD) is effective.

Learning experiences of service users look to be a crucial factor to take into account when designing, delivering, and evaluating effective interventions that promote self-management in chronic illness. What learning activities service users actually undertake themselves when self-managing BD that might explain varying success rates, and guide future self-management educational programmes has not been examined...
