Bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder (BD) is a condition that is highly affected by stress. Manic and depressive episodes can be triggered by significant life events. The ideal treatment protocol is psychiatric medication administration and regular (weekly or biweekly) psychotherapy sessions.

Psychotherapy is an integral part of bipolar disorder treatment and can be performed in individual, family, or group settings. Therapy can help people deal with stress from these external factors, manage symptoms, and improve relationships. Several types of treatments include:

Interpersonal Social Rhythm Therapy (IPSRT). IPSRT focuses on stabilizing circadian rhythms such as sleep, wakefulness, and meal times. A consistent routine allows for better mood management. People with bipolar disorder may benefit from establishing a daily routine of sleep, diet, and exercise.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), psycho-education, and family-centered therapy are the other services provided by Minhance to effectively manage Bipolar disorder.
