Creative outlets—music, scrapbooking, photography, etc.—are personal wellness tools anyone can use. Learn how through this new, self-paced course. A collaboration between DBSA and Lana Castle, author of Finding Your Bipolar Muse, the course discusses how to handle creative barriers, create the time and space you need for your activity, find focus, deal with criticism, and much more.

Launch "Tapping Your Creative Flow," a self-paced course on creative expression.

DBSA expresses its sincere thanks to Lana Castle for her collaboration on this course. Lana is the author of Finding Your Bipolar Muse and Bipolar Disorder Demystified, as well as a speaker and mental health advocate with a passion for the creative arts.

Tip exercise

walking is a great way for me to clear my mind when my thoughts are gloomy. getting some fresh air and sunlight esp. in the wintrer really helps. I have a s.a.d light but can only use it for 15 minutes a day or it kicks me into mania .(better than being depressed but not for my family.) when Iget manic walking helps me burn off the crazy energy so I can do something productive later on.
