OK, maybe you misunderstood the explanation. Lithium is not a mood booser - that is, it is not an antidepressant, but it is an effective mood stabilizer, helping to reduce unpleasant mood swings ( so its used in treating bipolar disorder ). I'm not sure why it would cause you to have sleep difficulties - do discuss this with your prescribing psychiatrist, who would surely want to re-assess the situation
