CANMAT Patient and Family Guide to Bipolar Disorder

A resource from the Canadian Network for Mood and Anxiety Treatments 

The "Patient and Family Guide to the CANMAT and ISBD Guidelines on the Management of Bipolar Disorder" is a guide for patients and families to understand the different evidence-based treatments available for bipolar disorder.

The Patient and Family Guide translates the key principles of the CANMAT and ISBD clinical guidelines for bipolar disorder so that they are accessible to non-clinicians, including patients and their families. The guide was developed in partnership with patients and patient advocacy organizations, making is very readable and relevant to the general public.
