Someone with bipolar disorder will have severe mood swings. These usually last several weeks or months and are far beyond what most of us experience. These bipolar mood swings can be low or depressive, high or manic or a mix of depressed mood with the restlessness and over activity of a manic episode.
Bipolar disorder used to be called ‘manic depression’.
Our treatment approach for Bipolar
Our approach to treating bipolar here at Nightingale Hospital London combines individualised treatment programmes with treatments based on current clinical evidence. There are two types of Bipolar treatment available: talking therapies and medication.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help with bipolar depression and identify coping skills, psycho education can educate about bipolar, and mood monitoring and mood strategies can help you identify when your mood is swinging and stop your mood swinging into a full-blown manic or depressive bipolar episode.
Bipolar medication can be used to stabilise your mood and reduce the chances of relapse.
