Abstract:This is the first explorative study aimed at investigating well-being among people with BD. It turned out that people with BD experienced lower levels of well-being compared to the general Dutch population and the level of well-being was only associated with depressive symptoms. Moreover, most people experienced moderate mental health and a small group of people was even flourishing. Since flourishing and improvement of well-being can protect against the recurrence of symptoms of mental illness (Iasiello et al., 2019; Keyes et al., 2010), it is important to develop interventions to improve well-being among people with BD. Since this study has shown that level of well-being did not differ for type of diagnosis and that diagnosis did not change the relationship between depressive and manic symptoms and the level of well-being, it can be concluded that people with BD-I and BD-II could receive the same interventions for improving well-being.
