The tradition of the Mogens Schou Award began at the International Conference on Bipolar Disorders (ICBD) in recognition of Mogens Schou, MD for his establishment of the first efficacious treatment for bipolar disorder and for his contributions to the field of psychiatry and the treatment of bipolar disorder over his lifetime.  The Award, initiated by the course directors of the ICBD, has become an ongoing feature of the annual meetings of the ISBD.
