Neil Hunt

Consultant psychiatrist, Fulbourn Hospital, Cambridge – Author of BiPolar Disorder – Your Questions Answered says:

Self-management is the process of gaining more control over the condition. The bipolar organisation, Somerset, promote the process of taking more responsibility for one’s own condition through literature, their self-help group and their training courses. Being an informed and insightful patient is undoubtedly one of the best routes to long term mental stability for those with BiPolar illness.

Paul Gilbert, Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Derby – Author of “Overcoming Depression” and Professor Jan Scott, Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and author of “Overcoming Mood Swings” make extensive reference to the benefits of those with BiPolar disorder participating in a self-management programme.

The area of treatment that has shown the most spectacular advance over recent years has been self-management. Professor John Geddes, Researcher at Oxford University, says what BiPolar patients really value is being given the tools to control their own condition.
