Lithium is used in the treatment of bipolar disorder; borderline personality disorder; schizoaffective disorder; depression; mania (and more), and belongs to the drug class miscellaneous antipsychotic agents.
To carry on, it isn't in the class of antipsychotics that are considered neuroleptics. Neuroleptic is an old term and is seldom used anymore to refer to meds.
