A Bipolar Disorder specialist in Melbourne

I am trying to assist my mother who has suffered from depression for at least 20 years and 5 years ago, was diagnosed with BP after suffering a manic episode.  We have changed many doctors in the past and wish to know is there someone who only specialises in this area who has had successful patients stabilised on prescribed medications.  My mother is taking Lithium, Olanzapine and just commenced Pristiq -  so 3 type of tables a day.  It's very difficult to see a family member in such a state at times but we are trying to understand BP and explain it to her.  She becomes very emotional when she realises that she must take tablets for the rest of her life.  Please recommend a BP specialist that we can see to finally stabilise her illness.
