Understanding Bipolar and the Bipolar Mood Scale
The “Understanding Anxiety and the Unconscious Mind” information pack needs to be completed first, because once the unconscious mind is properly understood, it is much easier to transfer that knowledge and the coping techniques to understanding and managing a bipolar condition.
This pack is designed to help explain and understand the disorder which will help to provide better support to the person with a bipolar disorder. By working through the information in a step by step process as set out in this pack, you will not only understand the disorder and how to control it, but you will have built a much stronger support structure.
This interactive board “The 1st Steps to Understanding your Bipolar” explains how Bipolar affects you and gives your a better understanding of your condition and ways to help you.
