Bipolar disorder treatment and support

Bipolar disorder is a treatable mental health condition that causes high and low mood swings so severe that they interfere with everyday life. A combination of therapy, medication, and support can help people with bipolar disorder manage symptoms and live as normally as possible.

Diagnosing & treating bipolar disorder

Accurate diagnosis is vital to effectively treating bipolar disorder. A psychiatric assessment by an experienced psychiatrist can differentiate it from other mental health conditions like depression and ADHD.

Once diagnosed, we can tailor treatment to your individual needs and the severity of symptoms. Typically, treatment involves a combination of medication, talking therapy, and lifestyle changes. These will be reviewed and adjusted over time.
