Understanding the signs and symptoms and seeking professional help are the first steps to managing your symptoms and staying on track. But beyond the treatment you get from your doctor or therapist, there are many things you can do to help yourself, including surrounding yourself with people you can count on, making healthy lifestyle choices, and monitoring your moods.
