Mood Charting for Depression and Bipolar Disorder

  1. 1. Mood Charting for Depression and Bipolar Disorder By Dr. Lester Sandman
  2. 2. Introduction • Dr. Lester Sandman treats patients with a variety of conditions, such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, and OCD. He earned his MD from the Medical College of Wisconsin. Through his private practice, Dr. Lester Sandman offers his clients a variety of treatment methods, including mood charting. Patients with chronic bipolar disorder and depression can improve the effectiveness of their treatment by mood charting. Whereas the mind may naturally focus on the primary mood prevalent since the last visit when speaking with a doctor, a more accurate picture will include details about other moods present during that time.
  3. 3. Mood Charting • Although mood tracking can be a pain, it allows for the broader picture. It may make it possible to find overall patterns. It will also help track whether a change in treatment, such as trying a new medication or beginning an exercise regimen, has any effect. This method ensures a rational and scientific approach rather than an emotional one. It is also easier to communicate to a doctor.
