What is Bipolar?

Bipolar disorder (BD) is a condition that is strongly affected by stress. Episodes of mania and depression can be triggered by significant life events, severe family conflicts, turbulent relationships and situations that disrupt sleep/wake rhythms. This is why it’s problematic when treatment is presented as mostly pharmacological. Those with BD function better when they receive medication management from a psychiatrist


Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an individual therapy focused on the relationship between a person’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. CBT teaches people to: Identify negative assumptions and thinking patterns, and challenge themselves to rehearse more adaptive ways of thinking. Monitor their activity levels to make sure they are engaged with rewarding aspects of their environment when depressed, and are not overly stretched when manic.
