Staying Well with Manic Depression/Bipolar Disorder
Many people with manic depression, also known as bipolar disorder, are living happy and fulfilling lives. How do they manage to stay well? Contributors to this book discuss many different ways to stay well. It is rarely just about seeing a psychiatrist and taking prescribed medication. It is often about so much more.
People who contributed to this collection are working as social workers, engineers, lawyers, stock brokers, nurses, builders, general practitioners, factory workers and so on. Many are parents. Each contributor speaks about manic depression in a personal and unique way. Together, they provide evidence that people with manic depression can, and do, stay well.
Although there is not a one-fix-fixes-all approach, there are some common strategies that people with manic depression use to stay well. With insight, education, experience and time, people with manic depression learn what works for them, and what does not work. Contributors to the book use their own life experiences and circumstances to create individual stay well plans. Their examples will help others with manic depression to create their own stay well plans. This book will provide hope for people with manic depression, their families and friends. By providing a wellness view of manic depression, this book may also provide important new insights for health care professionals.
