Tom Wootton, author of The Bipolar Advantage and The Depression Advantage, believes, much as I do, that wellness is achievable and a wonderful life possible, despite mental illness. Key to this wellness are accepting ‘what is’, gaining understanding and knowledge of your illness, seeking and following treatment, developing mind and social skills, and creating a plan for success.

Tom’s newly developed Advantage Program takes a team approach to addressing these key areas by offering training in several key areas and sub-categories, including:

Education:

Bipolar In Order
Biopsychosocial
Life Planning
Relationships
Mind Skills
Spirituality

Assessment:

Biopsychosocial
Medical
Relationships & Family
Spiritual
Peer

Treatment:

Psychopharmacology
Psychotherapy
Relationships & Family
Mind Skills
Spiritual Counseling
Exercise & Nutrition
Peer Coaching
Anthony Robbins ™


The ultimate goal for anyone with a serious mental illness is recovery; and The Advantage Program addresses elements of recovery including true freedom, real stability, equanimity, self mastery, and deep, supportive, open and enduring relationships.

Sounds good, doesn’t it?
