Bipolar disorder because it’s predominantly a biochemical disorder. So one would definitely need some form of medication for bipolar disorder. The way that cognitive behavioural therapy can help is that, over time, people can notice the cycles that they get into and they can notice early warning signs that might be telling them that they are about to hit a manic episode or about to hit a depressed sort of period.
