This video is from a public television program called "Moving From Bipolar Disorder To Bipolar IN Order." It explains what bipolar is and the difference between disorder and IN Order by detailing the six stages that one goes through as understanding and functionality improves. It outlines more complete assessments geared toward success, advanced tools that supplement existing tools, and stage specific plans that accommodate the needs of each of the six stages.

The direct link to youtube for the video is and goes into more detail about it. I would love to hear your feedback on it and where on the scale you think you might be at.
