 That Is Challenging The Pervasive Attitudes About Bipolar And Depression

Understanding The Challenge of Living With Bipolar Disorder

When students first come into our program, they often talk about feeling burned out from years of facing Bipolar Disorder. Years of difficulty and overwhelm that they describe as taking over their lives and getting in the way of their hopes and dreams. The describe...

  • Difficulty in making sense of their diagnosis.
  • Overwhelm during manic and depressive episodes.
  • Broken relationships.
  • Inability to work.
  • Hard times in finding an appropriate treatment method.
  • Inability to function.
  • Horrible side effects from invasive treatment methods.
  • Discomfort in the use and dependance of invasive tools.
  • Living in a state of anxiety over future episodes.
  • Inability to communicate clearly with doctors and therapists.
  • Confusion and lack of understanding about thriving with the condition.
  • Financial depletion and stress from the burden of excessive medical related expenses spent on various treatment methods such as medicine, therapy, frequent doctor visits, hospitalizations and treatment facilities.
  • Frustration with not yet finding the one thing that will make the condition manageable or go away completely.

Who We Are

Since 2003, the program has undergone major updates and changes through the years to make it as effective as possible in bringing out the best results for Bipolar and Depression. In spite of all the implemented changes, the one thing that remains true is the core principle of challenging the pervasive attitudes about bipolar and depression. To date, we have helped more than 150,000 people.

Through the Bipolar Advantage Online Membership program, students learn about an integrative approach that focuses on bringing about the best possible outcomes for mental conditions. The approach does not ask students to drop whatever tools they are currently employing to manage their condition. Nor does it suggest the use of any one method over all others. Instead, we guide students to find what works best for them, with the goal of thriving as the primary aim that eventually unfolds into the achievement of full functionality.

What Our Students Say About Our Courses

I was desperate for help and Bipolar IN Order delivered. I learned how to identify my feelings, the changes in my thinking during mood swings and my initial reactions to them. Realizing I had a choice in how to respond instead of just reacting was pivotal. This tool, combined with others, has morphed into a great practice for self examination in the IN Order stages. It is one of the components that taught me discipline and self-control throughout my journey to Bipolar IN Order. What I've learned will serve me well for the rest of my life. Life is finally good.

Bipolar Advantage transcends the paradigm of bipolar disorder treatment: the focus shifts from eliminating it, to accepting and increasing functionality while going through it. Bipolar In Order has changed my life for the better- after years of failure. I think it is a great resource for anyone interested.

In 30 years, I thought I had tried everything to combat bipolar depression. Bipolar IN Order taught me not to fear my episodes of depression and mania, but to function well within them. Bipolar IN Order has given me my life back. I no longer fear my episodes, and these episodes no longer destroy my life.

What Professionals Say About Our Courses

Tom is doing something no one else is really doing. He is turning a serious mental illness on its head and suggesting that by accepting rather than fighting the disorder, people with bipolar can identify and access their strengths and lead lives that are not only satisfying but productive beyond their wildest imaginings... Tom is ahead of the pack. He is staking out new territory and leading the way in showing people with brain-based disorders like bipolar that it is possible to live richly.

Tom's message-and approach-is a welcome antidote to many, popular ideas about mental illness. He integrates sound, evidence-based tools (such as self-awareness, self-care, and medication) with an especially humane perspective. Too often, in having to accept their condition, people end up feeling pathologized - reduced from a full person to a label. But Tom looks beyond the diagnosis to help people embrace - and accept - the best parts of who they are, instead of reflexively dismissing their feelings and experiences as a simple manifestation of illness. I can't think of a more important ingredient to living with bipolar disorder or any mental health difficulty.

Bipolar IN Order explores the positive value of mania and depression, linking it to Eastern traditions of mental discipline, while at the same time appreciating the need for warranted medical diagnosis and treatment.

Bipolar In Order provides the essential message that symptom reduction or elimination is far from the main goal of adaptation and intervention. Sure to challenge traditional thinking, this important work is integrative and wise.
