BIPOLAR SUPPORT GROUP
The bipolar support group is conducted on Thursdays of the first week of every month.
Patients and their family members attend the meeting to share their experiences and
support. Patients and their family are educated about the disorder, symptoms and its
management. Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy (IPSRT) is discussed as an adjunctive
therapy. IPSRT helps people understand and improve their moods by understanding and
working with their biological and social rhythms. It teaches techniques to improve
medication adherence, manage stressful life events, and reduce disruptions in social
rhythms. IPSRT educates patients of skills that let them be aware of future episodes.
First Thursday of Every Month 2pm to 3pm
