More than 100 articles on all aspects of depression and bipolar, plus news, links, newsletter, forum, books, and message boards. Knowledge is Necessity. Recovery starts with knowledge. I can't emphasize this enough, In 2004, an editorial in the British Medical Journal cited two Stanford University studies that found that "expert patients" who took the trouble to learn about their illness and took active steps to manage it had much better outcomes than those who did not. "Long live [quite literally, one assumes] expert patients," concluded the editorial. My name is John McManamy. I am an award-winning mental health journalist and author. I have dedicated the last nine years of my life to researching and writing on depression and bipolar disorder for people like yourself - patients and loved ones. I know where you are coming from. I am also a patient, as well as a loved one.. Here, you will find articles that will give you greater insight into your illness and behaviors and help you make your own choices in your treatment and recovery. Thanks for stopping by.
