Bipolar Disorder Treatment

Integrated Mental Health Treatment Solutions

At Wellness Psychiatry, our goal is to provide comprehensive and innovative psychiatry services that help those suffering from bipolar disorder to achieve real results. Our integrated medicine approach focuses on a balance between traditional treatments and integrative medicine to help our patients find the right combination for their individual needs.

Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners use medication and supplement treatment plans for mental health issues such as bipolar disorder. However, many patients struggle to effectively manage their symptoms when relying on a single form of treatment. Fortunately, evidence shows that combining traditional medications with integrative treatments can be an effective solution for managing mental health issues.

Common Treatments for Bipolar Disorder

Mania and depression are symptoms of bipolar disorder, a serious mental health illness characterized by strong mood fluctuations. Wellness Psychiatry provides a variety of services to aid patients in controlling their symptoms and regaining a sense of normalcy in their life.

Medication and Supplement Treatment Plans

When it comes to treating the symptoms of bipolar disorder, our skilled psychiatric nurse practitioners know just what to prescribe. Mood-regulating medications, such as antidepressants, antipsychotics, and mood stabilizers, can be quite helpful. Omega-3 fatty acid and vitamin supplements, among others, may be used in tandem with conventional medical care.

At Wellness Psychiatry, we take an integrated approach to treatment that combines medication therapy with integrative treatments such as nutrition therapy and stress management. When used together, these therapies can help to balance neurotransmitter levels, reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, improve sleep quality, and enhance overall emotional wellbeing.

Medication and supplement treatment plans can work together in a variety of ways. For example, medications such as SSRIs (serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and SNRIs (norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitors) are frequently used to target the underlying cause of depression or anxiety symptoms. These medications increase serotonin and norepinephrine levels in the brain and can be effectively used with nutrition therapy, herbal treatments, and lifestyle modifications to further improve a patient’s mental health.

Integrative Approach to Bipolar Treatment

If you want the best possible outcomes from your medical treatment, consider our integrated medicine method, which combines conventional medical care with alternative therapies. Combining medication with nutritional therapy, stress management, and other lifestyle changes can better regulate brain chemistry, increase the quality of sleep, and boost mental health. Our bipolar treatments typically involve a personalized approach towards a medication plan or supplement plan, and sometimes a combination of the two. We also offer psychotherapy and lifestyle modifications, as these can be incredibly helpful in managing the symptoms of bipolar disorder.

Personalized Treatment Plans

We’re aware that bipolar disorder manifests itself in different ways for different people. As a result, we tailor our care to the individual requirements of each patient. An effective and well-rounded treatment strategy may involve a combination of medicine, supplements, psychotherapy, and changes to the patient’s diet and way of life.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
about Bipolar Disorder Treatment

Although medication is the mainstay of treatment for bipolar disorder, other approaches, such as talk therapy, lifestyle changes, and stress reduction strategies, can be helpful in alleviating symptoms.

How long does it often take to determine the optimal course of treatment?

Finding the optimal pharmaceutical regimen can be a unique experience for each person. Finding the optimal dose and combination may need some experimentation.

what our clients say

I was extremely apprehensive on my first visit because I was in a very bad mental state. Amanda was very thorough, very friendly, and made me feel very comfortable from the very beginning. As I recovered I looked forward to our visits but in the end we mutually decided that it was time for me to leave the nest and fly away. If I ever need her I can always call on her. There was something about the layout of the office, the furnishings, and the calming energy that always put me at ease. My first encounter with psychiatric counseling was definitely a positive experience and something that I'll cherish.
This practice has not only helped my mental health, but I have been treated in a way that is caring and thoughtful. I feel like I'm more than just the 10:30 client - there's a vested interest in my well being. Amanda Farrell is who I've been working with for a few years now and I highly recommend her! I also feel confident that anyone in the practice is trustworthy and reliable. Again, highly recommended!
Amanda is an absolute RARE find. My husband even agreed that she does….actually….. care about me and my health. I’m 50 and this might be the first time in my life that I’ve felt that my doctor/therapist really wants me to be happy and successful in life. Starting therapy when I was in my 20’s so there is a long list of docs/therapist that I’ve seen over the years. Highly recommend — especially if you’ve started feeling like you’re just another patient in the queue.
This is the best psychiatry practice I have been to. Everyone I have worked with has been empathetic and understanding. The office feels very warm and I feel very taken care of. I always know when I call or email, Riley will be super responsive to my needs. Highly recommend!
Amanda has been incredibly helpful. I'm much happier and more productive.
Wellness Psychiatry goes above and beyond. Everyone from admin to clinical staff. The team fosters warmth and are very attentive to your needs. Addressing mental health has felt overwhelming but this team makes it me feel comfortable and supported. Thanks!
