Bipolar Information in Spanish

Q. I would like to provide information, in Spanish, about bipolar disorder to parents at my school. Can you tell me if any is available and where I can find it?

A. There are several sources for information on bipolar disorder, in Spanish. The state of Texas has a website with good information (http://www.mhmr.state.tx.us/centraloffice/medicaldirector/BPDFactSP.pdf) in PDF format. You can also find information at these websites: http://www.nimh.nih.gov/publicat/spdepresion.cfm#ptdep3 and http://www.nami.org/helpline/spbipolar.html (Nuevas opciones para el tratamiento del trastorno bipolar).

Finally, your clients might also be interested in the book El Control de tu Estado de Animo: Manual de Tratamiento de Terapia Cognitiva para Usuarios (Mind Over Mood: Change How You Feel by Changing the Way You Think) by Dennia Greenberger and Chrisine A. Padesky, though it does not focus specifically on bipolar disorder.
