Under the leadership of Dr. Karen L. Swartz, ADAP's high school curriculum has reached over 60,000 students in 20 states. The program's main messages are that depression and bipolar disorder are treatable medical illnesses and concerned individuals should seek help. The mADAP app can be used as a supplement to the curriculum or as a freestanding source of information on mood disorders, particularly as they pertain to adolescents.
