Bipolar disorder is a complex disorder of mood and behaviour that requires a multimodal treatment approach. In the past 10 years there has been growing interest in psychoeducational interventions delivered as adjuncts to conventional management. Several studies have tested the effectiveness of psychoeducational treatments delivered in a variety of formats. In this article we assess the evidence for the efficacy of these interventions and consider the likely future role of structured psychoeducational treatments in clinical practice.
