    –9 years of life

    –12 years normal health

    –14 years of working life

    Mental Health Research Funders Report, 2005

How common is bipolar disorder?

  • 1-2 in 100 people for DSM-IV bipolar disorder

    –Similar clinical and functional outcomes to BD

  • Around 50% of people presenting with depression may fit in the bipolar spectrum

    Gareth Hill et al, 1996; Kupfer et al 2002; Angst et al., 1999

  • High rates of drug and alcohol misuse

    -46% alcohol disorder

Key issues

  • It is not good enough to offer people therapies developed for other conditions

  • There are a wide range of psychological interventions available for BD

  • The right intervention delivered by correctly trained therapists significantly improves functional and symptom outcomes

  • Badly matched treatment delivered by inadequately trained therapists makes people worse

IAPT SMI Outcome Measures for Bipolar Disorder


Outcome data

Outcome data

  • Paired samples T-Tests were carried out to determine whether there were any significant differences between pre-therapy and end of therapy scores (week 10) on all outcome measures.

  • Service user’s scores on depression (PHQ-9) and anxiety (GAD-7) scales were significantly reduced by the end of the mood on track programme.

  • Scores on the ISS sub-scale – well-being, increased significantly indicating improvement in well-being.

  • Scores on the WASAS significantly reduced indicating that mood difficulties were impacting less on individuals day to day functioning.

  • There was also a significant increase in participant’s scores on the BRQ measure, indicating a higher subjective sense of recovery
