You might be recently diagnosed. You might have been living with bipolar for several years. Either way, you’ll want to read ‘Bipolar: The Essential Guide’ for all the essential facts and info about living with this most challenging condition. Written by Donny Lyons (former Chief Exec of the Mental Welfare Commission), Bipolar Scotland Staff and people with lived experience, the Essential Guide is your guide to the illness’ symptoms and causes, treatments and help available, support for carers, legal advice and lots more. The Guide has also been endorsed by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and will form a key part of their Bipolar Care Pathway. Our goal is to make sure that every newly diagnosed person in Scotland gets a copy of the Guide at the point of diagnosis. Knowledge is power and this booklet will give you the strength to live life to the full and control bipolar, not let it control you. The Guide will also support you to engage constructively with all the health professionals you encounterbipolar-essential-guide-pdf
