Diagnosis, Treatment, and Recovery Maintenance in Bipolar Depression

J Clin Psychiatry 2010;71(1):e01
10.4088/JCP.8125cc5c

Clinicians must consider the existing evidence on the long-term efficacy of various pharmacologic and psychosocial interventions for preventing and treating bipolar mood episodes.
