Bipolar Disorder in the 21st Century
Edwin W. Monroe AHEC Conference, Greenville, NC


The recognition of bipolar disorder as a mental illness has been present for almost three centuries, though systematic treatment has been frequently lacking. There have been no medications specifically designed for use in bipolar disorder, and the rate of recurrence is shockingly high even despite best treatment efforts. However, in the last decade, there have been two major shifts in how we approach and treat this illness. The first has been in the diagnostic criteria. DSM-5 has made changes to the base criteria for the illness and in the structure of the diagnostic categories. The second change is the relative explosion of FDA-approved medications for bipolar disorder that are now available, and potential new medications currently in trials. Both of these changes have contributed to a new culture of treatment. Bipolar disorder is increasingly being diagnosed in patients (especially as a “spectrum” illness); medications used for bipolar disorder are among the most prescribed in the United States; and the general public is much more accepting of this diagnosis as a mainstream illness. This workshop will focus on a review of the current concept of bipolar disorder and our application to patient diagnoses. We will then critically review the literature for treatment and the expert guidelines of the past few years. Finally, we will discuss non-pharmacological interventions for patients with mood instability
