Aim and Background: Family members of patients with bipolar I disorder (BID) endure a considerable burden as a result of their care giving role. Thus, assessment of their psycho-educational needs is an essential prerequisite to their mental health. Thus, the present study was designed to assess the educational needs of family members of individuals with BID. Methods and Materials : This research was a phenomenological qualitative study. Findings of qualitative assessment were gathered through focus group discussions (FGDs) with the caregivers of patients with BID. Purposive sampling was implemented until saturation, as a result of which 20 subjects were selected. Colaizzi’s method was used for analyzing the data. Findings: A total of 7 main concepts were extracted from 20 interviews. These concepts consisted of recognition of the disorder, coping with the patients’ behavioral problems, therapeutic compliance, acceptance of the patients within their families, the need for consultation, therapeutic education, and social roles. Conclusions : This study provides relevant data concerning the needs of caregivers of patients with BID for psychosocial education in specific areas. Thus, it is suggested that future clinical trials focus on psychosocial interventions for these individuals.
