Tools for Clinicians

The Clinical Monitoring Form (CMF) streamlines the process of eliciting and recording basic information during routine follow-up visits from patients suffering from a mood disorder.
The Affective Disorders Evaluation (ADE) streamlines the process of eliciting and recording patient history information during initial visits or consultation visits with patients suffering from a mood disorder.
The Clinical Self-Report Form was designed to systematically collect information about the symptoms commonly experienced by patients with mood disorders. Collecting information at each visit allows your doctor to better track the course of your symptoms and your response to treatment

Tools For Everyone

A Mood Chart is intended to provide a simple means of generating a graphic representation of your illness over the last month. Mood charting will allow you to systemically bring together important pieces of information such as medication levels, mood state, and major life events to see emerging patterns that otherwise might be difficult to discern.


A Treatment Contract is a document that you write while you are feeling well to plan for the times when you do not feel as well. It is written so you, your family, friends, and doctors can recognize your symptoms of illness and can comply with your wishes for treatment.

Referral Database:
Finding a Bipolar Specialist


The aims of the referral system are simple: to provide an easily accessible, free referral source linking bipolar patients and their families with qualified local providers. The referral database contains a list of clinicians who have experience treating bipolar patients, and are interested in providing evaluation, consultation, or on-going care to patients with bipolar illness. We will be maintaining the referral database consisting of the names, contact information, and experience of care providers who can provide services to bipolar patients. It has search functions for zip code (U.S. only), state, country and physician's name.
