Bipolar Disorder


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 can be following types:
  • Bipolar 1
  • Bipolar 11
  • Rapid cycling
  • Cyclothymia

Our treatment approach for Bipolar Disorder

Our approach to treating bipolar disorder at Psych Consult Belfast combines individualised treatment programs with treatments based on current clinical evidence. There are two types of bipolar treatment available: talking therapies and medication. Medications are mostly used to overcome mood swings and mood instability. They are also used to reduce the chances of relapse. Talking therapies can help with the bipolar depression and identify coping skills. Our treatment for bipolar disorder is as an outpatient. Sometimes we may request admission to a psychiatry hospital.
