Conclusion

Because the study is not complete, we cannot yet draw final conclusions from MTBD. Our experience so far suggests that IPSRT successfully promotes rhythm stability and may lead to improved outcomes in subsets of patients with bipolar disorder, such as those with acute depression. However, the less intensive ICM intervention also promotes wellness in some of our patients. Given the complexities of this illness, it seems likely that IPSRT will prove to be an effective intervention for some patients during some phases of the illness. For bipolar disorder, the adage, "one size doesn't fit all" seems particularly apt. We may learn that IPSRT contributes significantly to improvements in symptoms and functioning for some individuals, but that for others, adjunctive ICM suffices.

Our quest to find better treatments for patients suffering from bipolar disorder led to the development and testing of IPSRT. We hope that, in the final analysis, IPSRT will provide yet another option for the treatment of bipolar disorder, helping some patients to achieve a fuller and more stable recovery than would have been possible with medications alone.
