Intervention for bipolar disorder includes medication, environmental changes, job, educational support, and psychotherapy.
A mental health professional such as a psychiatrist can work with an individual to establish a medication regimen. A neuropsychologist may evaluate cognitive complications, and an occupational therapist may work with a client on work-related difficulties. Sometimes, a social worker may provide emotional support as well as connect an individual to support services within their community.
Patients with bipolar disorder may experience cognitive complications related to episodes of mania or depression. Cognitive problems experienced by patients diagnosed with bipolar disorder include difficulty planning, working memory problems, and language deficits. Cognitive remediation therapy provided by a licensed medical professional can assist with improving cognitive function before and after a patient has an episode of psychosis.
