Special Issue Information
I am pleased to invite you to submit your original research work for inclusion in this Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine, titled “Advances in the Clinical Management of Bipolar Disorder”.
Bipolar disorder is a multifaceted illness involving multiple episodes of severe affective disturbance. If left uncontrolled or undertreated, bipolar disorder is associated with lasting neuropsychological deficits, diminished function, reduced quality of life, and increased psychosocial burden on the patient and their family. Bipolar disorder is linked to premature mortality from both suicide and medical comorbidities. It is currently one of the leading causes of disability worldwide.
This Special Issue seeks to identify novel strategies for the clinical management of bipolar disorder, aiming to:
- Improve clinical response during the acute phase of the disease, either in a manic, depressive, or mixed episode;
- Improve patient adherence to long-term treatment;
- Reduce the psychosocial burden of disease upon the patient, the patient’s family, and caregivers;
- Reduce harm in the form of preventable hospitalizations, medical complications, self-harm, and long-lasting neuropsychological sequelae of untreated disease.
