Bipolar Disorder, a Variant of Depression

One of the trickiest mental illnesses to treat is Bipolar Disorder, specifically because of its biological basis and because those who suffer may initially deny they have it. If you, or someone you love, have recently been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, I highly recommend The Bipolar Disorder Survival Guide, Second Edition: What You and Your Family Need to Know by David Jay Miklowitz (Dec 15, 2010). This book offers practical knowledge on the symptoms and treatment of Bipolar Disorder and is a must-read for both the general public and clinicians alike.
