We are pleased to announce that the new Patient and Family Guide to the CANMAT and ISBD Guidelines on the Management of Bipolar Disorder is now available.
The Patient and Family Guide was developed to translate the key principles of the CANMAT and ISBD clinical guidelines for bipolar disorders so that they are accessible to a broader group of people, including patients their families.
CANMAT has also developed a guide for patients and families for the treatment and management of unipolar depression.
The Patient and Family Guide was developed by CANMAT and the International Society for Bipolar Disorders (ISBD) in collaboration with the Patient and Family Advisory Committee, Department of Psychiatry, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre; the Mood Disorders Association of Ontario; and the International Bipolar Foundation. The guide is provided by the Brenda Smith Research and Education Fund via the Sunnybrook Hospital Foundation.
