Since starting the service, a number of doctors and dentists have attended PHS with bipolar disorder, some of whom were not already known to treatment services. This is hardly surprising as there are between 1,400 and 2,000 doctors with bipolar disorder working in the UK.

Most health professionals with bipolar disorder get on with their professional lives. The keys to staying well are about looking after yourself properly, good management strategies and good relationships with your healthcare team.
