Manic Depression Treatment

manic depression, bipolar disorder

Manic Depression Treatment

Manic Depression treatment, also known as bipolar disorder treatment. Bipolar disorder characterises of mood swings between extreme emotional states. Individual’s with bipolar disorder may not be aware of the disorder as it occurs in episodes and may vary. One of the most difficult and important aspect of bipolar disorder treatments is the assessment. Detecting bipolar can be hard as they occur in a due course of time and can be easily misdiagnosed, especially among adolescents.

Assessment is also important as there are different types of bipolar disorder and specific treatment can be given only when the disorder is clearly diagnosed. However, there are treatment options for bipolar disorders in general, let us have a look at them:

  • Psychoeducation: Learning about the disorder is essential as it helps you understand the difficulty you are going through along with that you can also keep track of your progress when taking treatment. It also helps you identify situations that trigger your mood thus helping you either cope or avoid it.
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy: Also known as CBT helps focuses on changing the thought patterns thus changing the behaviour. It aims to detect the unhelpful thinking patterns and replace them with alternative helpful ones. It also helps you identify triggers and ways to cope with them. it also focus on managing symptoms and problem solving.
  • Interpersonal and social rhythm therapy: Interpersonal therapy focuses on how the individual communicates with others in their lives; it aims to manage conflicts in their interpersonal relationships. Along with interpersonal therapy, social rhythm therapy is also used. Individuals with bipolar tend to have a very sensitive biological clock and this can be easily disrupted causing stress. As stress is one of the triggers in bipolar, this therapy helps stabilize the individual’s sleep, wake, eating and other activities, thus stabilizing the social rhythm.
  • Family therapy: Family therapy is recommended for individuals with bipolar as it affects their relationship with the family members and creating conflicts. Also family therapy plays an important role in educating the family members about the disorder and helping creating a positive and supportive environment for the individual.

Taking up treatment and keeping up with it can be a task for the individual suffering from manic depression. Manic Depression require continued treatment to improve and maintain the symptoms. Here, family and friends can play an important role in encouraging and supporting the individual. For the best manic depression treatment, contact psychologist & psychiatrist on +919611194949.
