From Dr Phelps

There are many different treatments used in the treatment of bipolar disorder, in addition to the medications that are the mainstay of treatment.

Here we will look at some of the treatments - from the "talking therapies" through to "electroconvulsive therapy"

When mired in an episode of bipolar disorder, whatever treatment helps is the one we want to use.
