New pamphlet on bipolar disorder

15 May, 2014


In response to frequent requests for information on Bipolar Affective Disorder, the Mental Health Foundation has developed a new brochure called Understanding Bipolar.

As well as general introductory information on bipolar, it also covers medication, talking therapies, self-management and how family and whanau can best support.

The brochure has been written by Registered Psychologist Janet Peters in consultation with those with bipolar experience and the NZ Bipolar Support and Depression Network. The Athena Trust kindly funded this work.

You can view Understanding Bipolor online or order hard copies through our Resource and Information Service.
