1. What is this about? The Symptom Monitoring Programme is a self-management intervention for people with bipolar disorder and/or recurrent depression. The purpose of this programme is to provide the best possible symptom monitoring before, during and after therapy, to educate about symptom monitoring methods and the patient's disorder, and finally to provide information that may help to prevent future relapses or to track progress during treatment. The programme was developed at the University of London, Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London by Dr. Yanni Malliaris and his colleagues. 2. What does it offer? - Continuous monitoring of the symptoms of a bipolar or recurrent depressive disorder by expert mood monitoring facilitators using gold-standard assessments. - Training in symptom monitoring methods and self-assessment techniques. - Psychoeducation about manic and depressive symptoms and the course of these disorders. - User-friendly systematic feedback about the symptomatic status and response to treatments that may help to identify triggers and prevent future relapses. - Confirmation of a Bipolar or depressive disorder and clarification of the type of the mood disorder through the systematic and continuous monitoring. - Assessment of early signs of relapse and continuous monitoring of these signs using new technologies (iMonitor). - Use of advanced technologies for monitoring activity and sleep in a continuous and objective manner without burdening the patient. The results of the program can be also useful to other health professionals with whom the patients works with and of course, for patient’s relatives who many times wish for a more thorough and comprehensive update. The use of the results, as well as their dissemination to third parties (relatives, professionals) is always a private matter and choice of the patient.
