Beating Bipolar

Beating Bipolar is web-based program designed to help users increase their awareness of Bipolar illness in their daily life. Beating Bipolar provides basic information about Bipolar, various treatment approaches, and living with the illness over the long-term. This is broken down into 8 educational modules: What is bipolar disorder; What causes bipolar disorder; Medication; Lifestyle; Relapse prevention and early intervention; Psychological Approaches; Partners, Families and Carers; and Women and Bipolar Disorder. It also includes videos of clinicians and individuals living with Bipolar, as well as a forum moderated by a professional.
