my name is Dr. Steven Lanyon

and I'm the Director of the

Alta Vista Research Center.

Bipolar disorder affects more than

five million Americans today.

However, new research is constantly expanding

the range of possible treatment options.

If you or someone you know

suffers from bipolar disorder,

the Alta Vista Research Center is currently

seeking participants for a new study.

We offer patients who are

experiencing severe mood symptoms

the opportunity to take part in

a randomized clinical trial.

Participants will be compensated

for their time and travel expenses.

You must be 18

or older to apply.

For more information, please call the

number at the bottom of your screen.

My name is Harry Poole.

I'm twenty-six years old.

Hello, Harry. Why don't you tell

us a little bit more about yourself?

I'm a student and I live in an

apartment with my brother John,

who's five years older than me.

So, how are you

feeling today, Harry?

I'm fine. I guess, I just,

I just have a really bad headache.

How's your sleep, Harry?

It's not, it's not great.

Any history of bipolar

disorder in your family?

Not that I know of.

Ever had

suicidal thoughts, Harry?

Any attempts?


Can you describe what your

mood swings are like?

I thought I was just gonna be a

guinea pig for some new medication.

Well, the more we know about

what you're experiencing,

They're just mood swings,

ok. Up, down. Up, down.

It's pretty self-explanatory,

isn't it?

All right, Harry.

I hear you.

Anything else you want to add?

Ok, that's enough for today.

Harry, this is nurse Miller.

She'll be assisting me

with your treatment.


- How are you feeling kiddo?

- Ok.

- Here.

- Thank you.

You're welcome, Harry.

Ok, good.

We'll let you rest up.

If you need anything,

just ask the nurse.

You can call me Anna.

We need to get one of those

vending machines for the apartment.

I mean, how cool would that be?

What are you smiling at?


You're in a hospital

eating shitty food,

experimenting with some drug

that's gonna make you impotent

or lose your hair

or grow a pair of tits.

You should be crying, dude.

How are you doing,

little brother?

I'm ok.

So how's the treatments going?

I don't know. It's fine, I guess.

We just started last night.

- Notice any differences?

- Dry mouth and constipation.

I'm glad I asked. Whoa!

What's with the camera?

Oh, it's part of the treatment.

They want to monitor

my progress 24/7.

Big brother is watching you.

Hi, Harry.

It's time for lunch.


Hi. Pork rinds?

I'm John, Harry's brother.

And you are?


Ah, pretty and funny.

Ah, hey, nurse

can you tell me where

I can get one of the vending

machines in your hallway?

Hope you like your lunch, Harry.


Seriously? I thought they only

made nurses like that in porn.

I think I'm in love, man.

You're gonna be all right.

How are you, son?

Listen, if you don't mind, I'd

like to talk to your doctor.

I had a few questions for him

regarding your treatment.

I just want to make sure my boy's

being taken care of properly.

You sure this thing

is safe, Harry?


Why'd you come here?

What do you want?

My boy's in the hospital.

It's only normal I come to see him.

You don't need to come visit me.

I was cleaning out

your old room the other day.

Found your first bible.

Jesus loves you.

And I love you, too.

Sometimes, sometimes I wonder if

you're not like that lost lamb,

that strayed from the flock.

Sometimes I wonder if the real reason

you're here is because you lost your faith.

Hi, Father. Did you come
