Bipolar disorder is a severe mental disorder that becomes chronic in about 40% of the cases and nearly 45% of the patients experience frequent relapses. The study population included all patients with bipolar disorder with a history of admission to psychiatric hospitals. Using a nonrandom sampling method, a total of 73 patients with bipolar I disorder were selected. The study data were collected using medical records, the Structured Clinical Interview (SCID), the Scale to Assess Unawareness in Mental Disorder (SUMD), the Drug Attitude Inventory-10 (DAI-10), the Liberman’s psycho-education protocol, and the checklist for patient’s adherence to behavioral and medication recommendations and the reasons for temporal or permanent stopping taking medications. It was found that female patients, patients with a high school degree or higher, and patients aged older than 30 years had better treatment adherence (p<0.01). Only 3.4% of participants had good treatment adherence. According to the results of Repeated measures ANOVA, participants in the experimental and control groups had significantly different post-test and follow-up scores on drug attitude, insight, and the reasons for stopping taking medication. We can conclude that the Liberman’s psycho-education protocol led to significant improvements in drug attitude, insight, and the reasons for stopping taking medication.
