Mood Disorder Management Chart

I’m adding A new Mood Chart for fellow Mental Wellness Managers, like me.

One thing that people who are newly diagnosed with a “Mental Illness” will learn  is, That it is extremely hard to get the time of a doctor. A typical visit to psychiatrist for prescribed treatment lasts 15 to 20 minutes. A new Doctor may only see a newly diagnosed client every three months.  In many cases its once every six months.

This can be very frustrating. It takes along time to get the proper medications and treatments that meets the unique needs of each newly diagnosed Mental Health Manager.

So it is in the best interest of  the consumer, to share  as much about his or her symptoms as he can, at a doctor visit.
This Mood chart is much more detailed,and therefor much more tedious to fill out. But  it can be helpful for charting more  symptoms. It may also be suitable for those who have Rapid Cycling Symptoms,schizoaffective  Or Borderline Personality Disorder Symptoms.

You may download a PDF copy of  the Mood Disorder Management Cart by click this Link Below:

    from my experience it may not be that there isnt help
    but that the system lets you down due to funding enabling lack of studies via specialists or lack of opportunities to help care

    very good point.
    In Some areas there are few specialists or therapist allotted… especially where social services are used.

    With few available visits, Its hard for a doctor to keep an accurate record of a client.

    Its evident, (in my opinion) that part of mental health manager is becoming more aware of symptoms and patterns when he is able too. Don’t expect the doctors to be doing it all for you.

    — Thanks for your comment bexwie

    These are so great!! Thank you for making these and making them available to download.

    I’m a peer support specialist who is going to start a pair run day program where I work in community mental health. I plan to put these on the wall and use them to inspire and assist.
