Bipolar disorder is nothing but a manic depressive psychosis. Drug therapy and cognetive behaviour therapy are very effective. Electro convulsive therapy is also used for immediate remedy. Regular exercise mainly Jacobson's progressive muscle relief technique is very useful. Keep stress away, eat healthy diet, avoid alcohol and smoking and talk to a suppotive person for your problems.

1. Get them on medication to manage the condition, such as lithium. 2. Determine their triggers during counseling, then avoid those triggers. This can be topics, people, or reminders. 3. Put controls in place, such as a credit card in the freezer or handguns locked up, to ensure safety.
