OPTIMA Mood Disorders Service

How our service can help you

We are an outpatient programme for adults with bipolar disorder who have recently had several hospital admissions for an affective episode. The service is modelled on a Danish Mood Disorders clinic and aims to reduce the risk of recurrence and readmission to hospital.

The programme has two main phases. The core programme, designed to consolidate recovery, provides individually tailored psychoeducation, regular psychiatric review, occupational therapy, physical health assessment and a newly developed cognitive pathway and group psychoeducation provides a 10-session programme of learning, peer support and self-management strategies for bipolar disorder.

Where appropriate, carers are provided with support and new for Autumn 2021 is a family and friends psychoeducation group.
