They are of three types – Bipolar I, Bipolar II and Cyclothymic disorder and the symptoms can include unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity, sleep patterns, ability to focus. Mood changes in Bipolar Disorder are much more intense than people normally experience and should be taken lightly.

Our Approach To Bipolar Disorder

First and foremost, if you are having any form of suicidal thoughts, you should immediately reach out to a friend or family or call a 24/7 helpline like Vandrevala Foundation on +917304599836. The diagnosis for Bipolar Disorder will have to come from your health provider who can refer you to a Psychiatrist or Psychologist, registered to perform tests to confirm your condition. If you are already under the treatment of a Psychiatrist, you are likely to be on medication and may have been suggested to consult a Psychologist for talk therapy. Happy n Healthys can help with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to manage your thought and action patterns.
We also provide family focused therapy since your actions or thought processes will affect your loved ones around you. Psychoeducation is also required to be more aware of your disorder and how to work around it. This would be beneficial for you and your family. There have been some advancements in this field and our Therapists would also be able to use Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy (IPSRT), which focuses on regulating daily habits such as, eating, exercising and sleeping. The sooner you work to manage your condition, the better. Reach out to us today to consult a therapist online from anywhere in India.
