Self Help

If you’ve been diagnosed with a form of bipolar disorder, you’ll probably find no shortage of people (doctors, family members, and members of support groups) offering advice whether you ask for it or not. The most important general guideline for self-care is to establish a sound therapeutic relationship with one or more doctors: a psychiatrist or psycho pharmacologist for drug therapy, and, if you prefer not to use this person for more traditional forms of therapy but want a professional to talk to, a psychologist, license clinical social worker, or similar licensed counselor. Bipolar Disorder is a lifelong, chronic medical condition. It cannot be cured, but it can in almost all cases be managed to at least some extent.
