Bipolar Disorder can be a difficult illness to both diagnose and to understand as there are variations in the symptoms and treatment. The first step is to ensure a proper diagnosis so that other possible conditions can be ruled out and a bespoke treatment plan can be created.
The symptoms of Bipolar Disorder are unique to the individual and so should the treatment of Bipolar. Research as shown that Mindfulness Training can alleviate anxiety symptoms and that both depressive and mania symptoms can be reduced by Mindfulness Training.
