How effective are psychosocial family interventions for the treatment of bipolar disorder in adults? Evidence-Based Answer: Overall, psychosocial family interventions for bipolar disorder do not appear to be effective. There is conflicting evidence on symptomatic improvement, medication compliance, and relapses but recovery rates and ratings of family relationships do not appear to improve. Patient-reported anxiety may be increased with psychosocial family interventions (SOR: B, systematic reviews with inconsistent findings).
