Living with Bipolar Group
Create a lifestyle to prevent and manage mood swings.
An educational seminar
In this 10 week series you will learn how to live more effectively with bipolar disorder. We will focus on non-medication techniques such as self-monitoring, lifestyle changes, light/dark manipulation, stress management, and relationship skills. We will also cover the latest research on the causes of bipolar disorder and medication options.
We will reserve a session at the end for families to attend so they can better understand how to support their relative.
The class is based on an educational series that was developed in Europe (see The Psychoeducational Manual for Bipolar Disorder at Amazon). Research has found that people who completed the series had lower rates of mood problems, and these benefits even continued several years after taking the course.

Costs and Insurance Coverage
The cost will depend on your insurance plan. Most insurance plans will cover this group; we can file with your insurance and reimburse you for the covered portion (copays, deductibles and annual visit-caps will still apply. Often the cost of each group session is less than most insurance copays, in which case we will charge the lesser amount).
