I have designed a self-care checklist; it is for basic care when you feel depressed, or your bipolar disorder affects your daily life. The checklist items seem very simplistic to someone who may not experience poor mental health, but they are a huge amount of effort for those who are ill.
Just print the PDF out. The first one is in colour, but I have made a black and white one for those who want to save on colour ink.
Or you can copy out the suggestions onto a notepad if you do not have a printer. If you are having trouble viewing the PDF on the website, you can download it by going here; it will open a link in a new window to where I host the self-care checklist.
