It’s definitely important to treat bipolar disorder, as if it’s left untreated, it can lead to other serious problems that can affect every area and aspect of your life. These other problems can be:
– Relationship problems
– Poor performance at work or school
– Financial problems or even legal problems
– Drug/alcohol misuse or abuse
– Suicidal thoughts or attempts (Please, if you feel suicidal or you know someone who you believe could be suicidal, call 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-SUICIDE)
Also, it’s possible to have another health condition that co-occurs with bipolar disorder and makes it worse. If this other condition is left untreated too, there could be further complications. A co-occurring condition may be:
– An anxiety disorder
– An eating disorder
– Alcohol/drug abuse
– ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder)
– Physical health conditions like a thyroid problem
We promise there are treatments available that may help you or your loved one significantly. Please keep in mind that bipolar disorder is a lifelong condition, but this doesn’t mean it can’t be managed. It certainly can be managed, often very effectively.
Treatment for bipolar disorder can be provided by a proper professional or a team of professionals. Often, one of these professionals is a psychiatric nurse practitioner. Here at Advanced Psych Care, we have a psychiatric nurse practitioner in Norrine McNelley PMHNP-BC. She is board-certified to help people with psychiatric/mental illnesses, and she’s able to introduce you to a psychologist if you need to see one.
The best treatment for bipolar disorder tends to be a combination of medication and psychological counseling (psychotherapy). More specifically, the psychotherapy usually provided is cognitive-behavioral therapy, interpersonal/social rhythm therapy, or family-focused therapy. The medication usually provided is a mood stabilizer or another medication like an antipsychotic. Sometimes a support group, medication management, or substance abuse treatment (if applicable) can be helpful too.
We can provide many of the treatments we mentioned above and help you find the other treatments/therapies you’ll need here at Advanced Psych Care. We can also help if you’re unsure whether you or a loved one may have bipolar disorder. Since our clinic is a private mental health clinic, we may be more accessible to you than a public clinic, so we may be able to help you more quickly with minimal wait time.
