A mood diary helps you keep track of your moods

Use this mood diary template with our mood scale to help keep track of your moods and to help you spot your patterns, triggers and any early warning signs of a relapse.

Why not use it to collect data to support your self-management plan, and to share with your family and healthcare team?

Bipolar UK Mood Diary 2017

How to use the mood scale and mood diary

  1. Select the score from the mood scale that matches how you are feeling and write that in under the date of the month in the section with red (cause for concern) yellow (moving away from a neutral mood) and green (neutral mood)
  2. Record how many hours sleep you had the night before
  3. Record any medication you are taking and the dosage
  4. On the second sheet record additional notes; what foods you ate and drinks you had; whether or not you exercised; any events that had a noticeable affect on your mood
