Richard and Cynthia Zirinsky Center for Bipolar Disorder
Richard and Cynthia Zirinsky Center for Bipolar Disorder at Mount Sinai Beth Israel is dedicated to the compassionate support, treatment and understanding of bipolar illness within the context of the family. The Center for Bipolar Disorder recognizes that bipolar disorder is a chronic illness and believes that preserving family health and stability is an essential part of successful and lasting treatment. The Center for Bipolar Disorder uses a multi-modal, Family-Inclusive Treatment (FIT) model, which is designed to include treatment partners at every step of a patient’s journey to a healthy and balanced life. FIT encourages and facilitates open family communication about the signs and symptoms of bipolar illness, as well as the treatment process and subsequent care. In addition to clinical services, the Center for Bipolar Disorder also has an active research program focused on optimizing the effectiveness of FIT in the treatment of bipolar illness, assessing suicide risk in adolescents and adults, developing novel interventions for bipolar depression, and studying the effects of stigma on treatment outcome in bipolar patients.
