In brief: Generally ongoing

At this point, mood stabilizers for bipolar disorder are needed on an ongoing basis.
However there is promise from certain kinds of psychotherapy, especially mindfulness-based approaches. Also there is some evidence that omega 3 fatty acids can help stabilize mood. Additionally regulating stress is important.
