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.
COVID-19 Update: Our team at the Zirinsky Center would like to reassure all families who trust us with their care that we remain open and are ready to provide any additional support and accommodations that may be needed at this time. In order to limit the need for travel, we are offering video appointments for individual, family and intake sessions.
As clinically indicated for in-office sessions, we are following all CDC guidelines around hygiene, cleaning and social distancing. This is a difficult and uncertain time for many and we are working hard to ensure that there are no disruptions in our ability to provide exceptional care to our Center families.
