Creativity Courses

Creative outlets—music, scrapbooking, photography, etc.—are personal wellness tools anyone can use. Learn how through this new, self-paced course. A collaboration between DBSA and Lana Castle, author of Finding Your Bipolar Muse, the course discusses how to handle creative barriers, create the time and space you need for your activity, find focus, deal with criticism, and much more.

Launch "Tapping Your Creative Flow," a self-paced course on creative expression.

DBSA expresses its sincere thanks to Lana Castle for her collaboration on this course. Lana is the author of Finding Your Bipolar Muse and Bipolar Disorder Demystified, as well as a speaker and mental health advocate with a passion for the creative arts.

Tip Keep on keeping on :)

When I feel really down... I get online and search positive quotes and upbeat music. This helps me to get motivated and it elevates my mood. Also journaling is a big part of my life. Music and journaling are my secret weapons :) Also, having a good support system helps!! I love my family and close friends more than words could say! Remember, attitude makes a big difference try to stay positive :)
