In The Other Depression, Grieco and Edwards help people understand and destigmatize those afflicted with bipolar disorder. Topics discussed include the genetic signature and environmental stresses and underpinnings of this disease, along with how it alters the functioning of the brain, and how it can be treated. The authors also introduce resources available to bioplar people and their families and suggest strategies for coping and getting on with life.
