The Concise Guide to Bipolar Disorder

A concise, essential guide to living with bipolar disorder by an internationally known expert.

When a diagnosis of bipolar disorder enters your life, you may not be sure where to turn for accurate information about this potentially devastating but treatable illness. Whether you yourself have been diagnosed, or a spouse, parent, child, friend, or employee has developed the illness, the need for information and advice is acute.

Presenting the essentials of diagnosis and treatment clearly and succinctly, leading psychiatrist Dr. Francis Mark Mondimore distills everything you need to know about bipolar disorder in this new indispensable guide. In down-to-earth language, Dr. Mondimore explains what bipolar disorder is and how you (or your loved one) can live your best life with the help of medications, therapy, the support of family and friends, and medical care.

An extensive list of references is included, along with additional suggested reading materials and online resources. Realistic clinical descriptions and anecdotes reflecting on fascinating historical details associated with this condition provide further information. The Concise Guide to Bipolar Disorder is an excellent up-to-date resource for the newly diagnosed or those seeking rapid answers to the most common questions about bipolar disorder.
