Group psycho-education for bipolar disorder.


Psycho-education is an established intervention for various physical and mental health conditions. This article describes a psycho-education programme developed for people with bipolar disorder. The courses appear to have been beneficial to participants and appraisal of the intervention is ongoing. One area that needs further consideration is whether courses should be run by a person who has bipolar disorder; the advantages and disadvantages of this are discussed.
