During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are tailoring our treatment to meet the ever-evolving needs of our patients. We understand how deeply social distancing can lead to true isolation, loneliness, and boredom; depression, anxiety, and deep fears that come with uncertainty. Additionally, we acknowledge the challenges of not having a work-life balance with the new 24/7 work-week, or difficulties maintaining healthy lifestyles, when ordered to stay home. Our COVID-19 Support Group is offered virtually, and will provide a space for you to connect with those who may be feeling similarly during this challenging time.
Our group will be offered during the following times:
The Richard and Cynthia Zirinsky Center for Bipolar Disorder is a unique New York City-based clinic that uses a family-oriented approach to treat people with bipolar illness. We are a seasoned, hands-on team of clinicians that includes both Psychiatrists and Psychologists with decades of combined experience in treating mood disorders. Our specialty is working closely together with patients and patients’ families to treat bipolar illness.
Our emphasis is on preserving family health, managing acute illness episodes, and establishing a strong support system within the family to ensure lasting treatment effects.
This Family-Inclusive Treatment method allows our team to get to know families in a dynamic and nuanced way, which helps to guide treatment, and has shown unmatched success in managing bipolar and other mood-spectrum illnesses. Although most of our patients have a Bipolar Disorder diagnosis our approach is highly effective for other conditions and difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, relational and family issues. (For more information, please view the link to our FAQ page.)
In our Center, we work together as a treatment team to provide a comprehensive selection of services, which are tailored individually to each family, and are constantly re-evaluated to ensure optimal care.
