A guide to coping with bipolar disorder which offers information on all the key areas, including medication, dealing with stress, and using psychological techniques to cope with manic depression. "Coping with Bipolar Disorder" is designed specifically for sufferers of bipolar disorder, their carers, friends and families. It combines definitive coverage of the condition and information about treatment with an approach which encourages patients to manage their own psychological health using cognitive behaviour therapy, as well as the more traditional medication regimes.
