A Guide to Recovery (OBAD's Book)

The Organization for Bipolar Affective Disorders has produced a book called "A Guide to Recovery". This book was compiled and created through the hard work and dedication of many individuals who have a mood disorder and has been a tremendous resource for both OBAD as well as the thousands of people who have read it. OBAD's book not only covers issues such as what Bipolar Affective Disorder, Unipolar Disorder and Schizoaffective Disorders are, but also ideas and methods for coping, dealing and living with these illnesses.
