Date:7/16/2008

It is possible to live an exceptional life with depression or bipolar. The Bipolar Advantage Program is an integrated approach of professional care that addresses your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relationship, and career needs that can help you to set realistic goals. Through better Education, Assessment, Treatment, and most importantly Results Worth Striving For, the Advantage Program sets the new standard of care in mental health.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 16, 2008 -- Bipolar Advantage Inc. will be introducing a new integrated recovery program called the "Advantage Program" on September 6, 2008. "The days of thinking a diagnosis of bipolar disorder means living a diminished life are over," says company president Tom Wootton.

"With Education, Assessment, Treatment, and Results Worth Striving For, the core principle of the Advantage Program is that mental conditions affect our entire lives, so all aspects need to be addressed in an integrated program. The Advantage Program addresses the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relationship, and career needs of each participant with an unprecedented coordination of the entire team of professionals."

The comprehensive, six-month intensive program utilizes a professional team including medical, psychotherapeutic, relationship coaching, spiritual counseling, peer support, Anthony Robbins Coaching™, mind skills, fitness, and nutrition. The non-residential program offers working professionals, students and others the chance to fully participate through a series of workshops and individual sessions.

"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..." -Maureen Duffy, Ph.D.

As a result of work done with Riverside, Orange, Alameda, and San Bernardino Counties, the Advantage Program was conceived by the collaboration of Tom Wootton, founder of Bipolar Advantage, and Dr. Peter Forster, M.D. of UCSF Medical School.

Tom Wootton, one of the leading consumer advocates for the mentally ill and author of two books, The Bipolar Advantage and The Depression Advantage, will be giving free local talks about this integrated approach to creating an exceptional life. Tom will be giving a series of talks throughout the San Francisco Bay Area during July and August and nationwide in the fall. Be sure to check out the schedule of events to find a location near you. Engaging and insightful, Wootton discusses his own experiences and offers solutions to those with bipolar, their family and friends. Therapists, doctors and counselors are also welcome.
