The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrist (RANZCP) recently updated their clinical practice guidelines for mood disorders. The guidelines provide expert advice and recommendations about the treatment of depression and bipolar disorder. The guidelines recommend that psychoeducation be provided to all individuals diagnosed with depression or bipolar disorder. Psychoeducation helps ensure that clients understand the nature of depression and/or mania, educates them about treatment options, and equips them with self-management strategies they may find helpful.
There are many psychoeducational resources for depression and bipolar on the CCI website. CCI's resources were specifically mentioned in the RANCP guidelines as examples of high-quality psychoeducation that clinicians may find useful to distribute to their clients. Links to these resources are provided below:

Psychoeducational resources are also available on our website for a wide range of other mental health conditions.
