Bipolar Treatment

When diagnosing bipolar disorder, understanding a baseline mood is critical, as mania and depression look different depending on how a person behaves when they are not affected by their symptoms.

Key symptoms of bipolar disorder can include a change in mood, or a difference in energy, drive and motivation. A person affected by bipolar disorder may no longer be able to do the things they normally would be expected to do.

Our services


Our 24-hour inpatient service is run by an experienced multi-disciplinary team.

We offer a comfortable, stable environment allowing patients the space and time to fully focus on their recovery.

Our inpatient services offer patients access to:

  • treatment, information and resources to help support recovery goals
  • our holistic care program designed to improve physical, nutritional and social health

Day Program

Our supportive day program accepts patients suffering from a broad range of issues and symptoms. A combination of therapies is used to deliver a program in a supportive, encouraging and learning environment.

The program is designed to give patients the support and skills they need to lead full and enjoyable lives, and to help prevent relapse and repeated hospital admissions. A group setting helps with social isolation and enables patients to discuss their challenges in a supportive environment and get help with problem solving and goal setting.
