CHICAGO, Ill., Aug. 6, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Dr. Lauren Goodall (PsyD), debunks stereotypes about Bipolar disorder in her new book “Bipolar is not an STD” (ISBN: 978-1543975581). Dr. Goodall designed the book around the idea that people can get better much faster, if they know how to recognize what symptoms look like. “People are trying to recognize stereotypes, instead of symptoms, and that doesn’t work.”
In further conversation with Dr. Goodall, she named her book specifically to stop unnecessary stigma behind the diagnosis of Bipolar. In her translation of the title- “Too many people hear the word Bipolar and attach misperceptions that aren’t warranted. I’ve spent a full career working with these people. Bipolar, if anything, can be confusing to detect, and people who have Bipolar, current research says that they get wrongly diagnosed 69% of the time, out of the gate. This number is way too high, and people can’t afford years off their life, getting bad diagnosis, because of confusing symptoms with other diagnosis”.
Goodall states, “I’ve always believed that if you can get the symptoms understood, and educate people, there doesn’t have to be a log jam of years of endless therapy, and wrong medications. In this day and age, where mental health is making the headlines, because of improper diagnosis early on; and missing very essential details. Bad information and wrong classifications cost us generations.”
Dr. Goodall was excited also to announce that she will be taking her new book, “Bipolar IS Not An STD” on the road in a lecture component directly to the people.
Her tour will include Chicago, Ann Arbor, San Diego, Phoenix, New York, and Miami. Dates of cities TBA.
“Bipolar is not an STD,” is currently released and available in softcover thru her website, https://drlaurengoodall.com/.
Book in traditional print and E-book are available thru Amazon. Dr. Goodall is available for interview by contacting her via the above website.

For Immediate Press Release
New York,Ny: July 30, 2019 Dr. Lauren Goodall (PsyD), releases her ground-breaking self-help book, “Bipolar is not an STD”. Dr. Goodall designed the book around getting people better faster. She wanted a book that could be finished over the course of a weekend; not something that would take a long period of time to plow through. There are distinctive compasses in the book. “People always confuse Personality disorders, with mood problems. That’s like confusing north from west. You won’t end up in the right place; confusing the two”. Instead of talking about the usual in relationships, she goes beyond affairs and relationship screw-ups that people don’t recognize. “There are a million ways to screw up a relationship besides affairs.”
In further conversation with Dr. Goodall, she named her book, “Bipolar is not An STD”. In her translation of the title – “too many people look at the word Bipolar and attach stigma that isn’t warranted. I’ve spent a full career working with these people. Bipolar can be confusing more than it’s hard. Ineffective symptom reporting, and lack of treatment is hard!”
Dr. Goodall looks to drastically reduce the amount of time it takes to recognize mood symptoms, and get better diagnosis; rather than the current research-based average of 6 years.
The reason, she believes, this number is so high, is because people cannot self-report their symptoms well, and “bad diagnosis information is a waste of time, money, and quality of life. Good therapy helps a lot, but a lack of understanding medical underpinnings and how they coordinate with the Psychological is a big piece of missing information. Both are critical for getting the job done.”
“Bipolar is not an STD”, is currently released and available in softcover , drlaurengoodall.com. E-book is available thru Amazon Kendall, and soft cover available at Amazon KDP. Dr. Goodall is available, for interview by contacting the above websit
