I think that lithium can be useful in many mood disorders. Many depressed people will say that it does not make them happy, but there is research to suggest that lithium will prevent suicide in unipolar or bipolar more than antidepressants will.

Believe it or not. Antidepressants do not prevent suicide statistically. The only two medications that have a statistically significant antisuicide effect are lithium, and clozaril (an antipsychotic)
