Working with Patients and Clients Who Take Mood Stabilizers


Mood stabilizers are medications used in the field of psychiatry and neurology to treat conditions that affect the mood. They can help suppress the fluctuations between mania and depression. This type of condition tends to be evident by intense mood changes that go beyond just a simple episode of anger, frustration, or impulsivity.

Knowledge is meant to empower, and not to prevent us from making decisions. I often speak about risk-benefit analysis as part of any decision-making process. This is where we, the clinicians, come in, to help support our patients and clients, to help them with this risk-benefit analysis exercise, and to help empower them to make an informed decision. We can help educate and support our patients and clients in making lifestyle modifications that will further decrease the likelihood of most of the side effects from Lithium and many of the other mood stabilizers.
