Treatments for bipolar disorder have benefits and risks that should be discussed by patients and their clinicians in the spirit of shared decision-making. This presentation discusses medications and psychotherapy for acute manic and hypomanic episodes, acute depressive episodes, and long-term treatment to prevent mood episodes. Mood stabilizers, second and third generation antipsychotics, as well as the mixed evidence for antidepressants are discussed. Evidence-based psychotherapies for bipolar disorder include cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness based CBT as well as lifestyle interventions.
