Help Those Affected To Lead Healthier, Happier Lives

If you have bipolar disorder or hope to help someone who does, this course gives you a single, comprehensive resource that will enhance understanding and help those affected to lead healthier, happier lives. You will learn about the signs and symptoms, diagnosis and treatments, and how to manage bipolar disorder.

To understand bipolar disorder, you first need to address the issue of mental illness in general. Studying the Bipolar Disorder Awareness Course, you will learn what is meant by the term “mental illness”. The course covers who is affected, the most common forms of mental illness, why the notion of mental illness itself is sometimes called into question, and how it can be prevented. You’ll also be exposed to what the latest research suggests regarding the causes and prognosis of its various forms.

Bipolar disorder has many different forms and while the common thread is a tendency to experience mood swings, the variations differ in many important ways. Through your studies, you’ll discover the various types and gain an understanding of what they can mean for the sufferer and the symptoms and treatments of each.

The predominant opinion of psychiatrists is that bipolar disorder is caused, maintained and worsened by multiple factors. You’ll learn what researchers have discovered about links between various environmental and biological factors, and mental health.

Often referred to as “the rule rather than the exception”, a bipolar patient is usually diagnosed as suffering from two or more additional psychiatric disorders, though it can be diagnosed alone. The Bipolar Disorder Awareness Course explores the range of comorbid mental illnesses that often co-occur in those with bipolar disorder.

Part of the treatment of bipolar disorder is medication. This course looks at the most commonly prescribed drugs for the various forms of the condition, including how each works, how they are administered, possible side effects, effectiveness, and the risks of taking medication during pregnancy.

Treatment for bipolar disorder isn’t limited to medication, with other supportive measures in place to help those with the condition. One such treatment is psychotherapy, which encourages those with bipolar to discuss their mental health problems. Studying the Bipolar Disorder Awareness, you will learn more about what psychotherapy is, why it is used, who it may benefit, its specific application in bipolar disorder, and how effective it is.

The prevailing opinion within the medical profession is that bipolar disorder cannot be cured but its effects can be managed. While psychotherapy and medication are effective in reducing the severity of symptoms, it is in making day-to-day changes that a sufferer can prevent mood episodes and decrease the intensity of those that do occur. This course explores the steps that someone with bipolar can take to manage the symptoms of their illness. Such steps include managing diet, exercise, sleep patterns, social support and other lifestyle factors.

Who would benefit from this course?

If you have, or think you may have, bipolar disorder or have a friend or family member who does, this course centralises all the information you need to fully understand the condition and how to manage it.

Similarly, if you work in a position of care or are a therapist, or would like to, the information contained within the course will help you to understand those living with bipolar disorder and enable you to help and give useful, actionable advice to those with the condition.
