Mood Mapping: Plot Your Way to Emotional Health and Happiness, by Dr. Liz Miller Liz Miller is a mental health professional who works actively in the mental health field, and who shares her personal experience in recovery from Bipolar Disorder I. Over 15 years after her recovery, Dr. Miller remains free of symptoms of bipolar disorder, and has not needed to take medication for bipolar disorder during that 15 year time period. She was able to trace the triggers to her mania and depression, and circumvent them. Additionally, she attributes her full blown bipolar disorder to a reckless lifestyle that included abusing alcohol (the largest percentage, 50% to 66% of cases of bipolar disorder involved past or present alcohol or other substance abuse). Dr. Miller extensively used writing therapy to gain insight into her symptoms of bipolar disorder and to make necessary changes. Mood mapping was one tool that helped Dr. Miller identify triggers, and rectify them. Mood mapping is a widely accepted method of gaining insight, recommended in many reputable sources for bipolar disorder self help. The particular method Miller teaches here is one of several similar effective methods. What is unique about Miller's book is that it is written by a mental health professional who herself both had bipolar disorder, and fully recovered from it, able to get off of psychiatric drug treatment permanently. Most advice, including self-help books, do not provide the option of permanent recovery from bipolar disorder, but categorize bipolar disorder as chronic, which is not the case in a significant percentage of bipolar disorder diagnosis, though the medical community erroneously promotes that idea. Miller's advise and experience give professional testimony to the fact that not all bipolar disorder is chronic and that a lifetime of psychiatric drug treatment is not the only option. This gives impetus to hard work by the bipolar client in the recovery process rather than complacency and resignation. In this way, Dr. Miller's methods, advice, and experience provide needed inspiration and a role model for self-efficacy for the bipolar disorder individual.Read Dr. Liz Miller's bipolar disorder story of recovery here (on-site).

Many children and adults are prescribed four or more prescriptions at one time.

Music is a powerful force in mental health. Music can elevate our moods, change the chemical balance of our mind, or cause us to identify with powerful emotions of love or hate, peace or anger, joy or sadness. You do not necessarily need to see music identify with it, therefore, music is something we experience in our mind. Psychology and music are powerfully connected.
