Item Description...
Practical tips that make it possible not only to cope with mood disorders, but to live a full and productive life.

Publishers Description
Life can hold rich possibilities even for those with a mental illness. Learning to live with a mood disorder is something people do gradually, as life unfolds. Bit by bit they begin to recognise the symptoms. Gradually they begin to manage their illness. Marja Bergen is one of those people. Over the 30 years that she has had manic depression, she has gradually adopted a lifestyle that makes it possible not only to cope, but to live a full and productive life. In 'Riding the Roller Coaster', she shares some very practical tips, including escaping the blues before they grab you, what to do when you don't feel like doing anything, and keeping life stable. But there are obstacles. There is a social stigma attached to mental illness. Marja Bergen believes that this stigma can be overcome. It is a matter of accepting mental illness as an illness like any other. It is a matter of attitude. The attitude of individuals with a mental illness -- toward themselves, toward their illness and toward their potential makes a great deal of difference. To become really well, a person must work hard to improve their own life. something to happen, and Marja Bergen writes with warmth and eloquence about how to do exactly that.

More About Marja Bergen

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! MARJA BERGEN is an award-winning photographer and freelance writer who has lived with manic depression and psychosis for 30 years. Her articles have appeared in The Vancouver Sun, and Fellowship magazine. In 1994/95, she served on the editorial committee of Moments, published by the Canadian Mental Health Association. Two and a half years ago Marja founded "Living Room," a faith-based support group for people with mood disorders. The program was such a success that she created a set of manuals to help other groups start up. There are now nine "Living Rooms" in Canada and more in the process of getting started. The benefits of Living Room are huge. It gives participants a place where they can talk about both, their faith AND their mental health challenges, something not usually comfortably done in secular support groups or church groups. At Living Room people can be authentic and not fear judgment or lack of acceptance. We create a loving environment for everyone, no matter where they are spiritually or emotionally.

Marja Bergen currently resides in Vancouver.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thoughtful and Encouraging  Feb 19, 2001
This book was recommended to me by my doctor after recently diagnosing me with bipolar disorder. It was very helpful in calming my fears and linking me back to my "normal" life. The book is written in a very segmented way (lots of subheadings) that is useful for jumping around to subjects that interest you. It provides very useful suggestions and practical tools for dealing with periods of depression and periods of mania. Throughout the book, the author provides first-hand accounts of her own experiences with different episodes in her illness. This gives a good sense of what the illness is like for those never having experienced it, and a sense of not feeling alone, for those who have. Probably most importantly, this book maintains a very hopeful outlook, and really instills the sense that anyone with a mood disorder can still accomplish their goals and live a relatively normal life. That is how it helped me at least. I think that this book would be excellent for not only those diagnosed with a mood disorder, but also their loved ones.
