In brief: Alone no

Occupational therapy alone has not worked in bipolar disorder but is certainly an important adjunct treatment to be used along with the other treatment modalities available.

In brief: Occupational therapy

Can help someone with bipolar think about what kinds of work situations will work best 4 their personality and their bpd.
Some people will do better working on their own with minimal supervision, others may need more support. Sometimes people lose their jobs due to conflicts with co-workers and an occupational therapist can help them figure out the best placements and perhaps help them get trained.
