Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a mental health condition that causes extreme shifts in mood, energy, and behavior. It is characterized by periods of elevated or irritable mood (called mania or hypomania) and periods of depression.
Bipolar disorder can be a severe and chronic condition, but with proper treatment, it is highly manageable.
The exact cause of bipolar disorder is not fully understood, but it is believed to be a combination of genetic, environmental, and neurological factors.
Bipolar disorder is typically diagnosed by a mental health professional, such as a psychologist or psychiatrist, through a thorough evaluation of a person's symptoms, behavior, and medical history. This may include a physical examination, laboratory tests, and psychological assessments.
Bipolar disorder is typically treated with a combination of medication, such as mood stabilizers or antipsychotics, and therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or interpersonal therapy. The goal of treatment is to help the person manage their symptoms and improve their functioning in daily life.
While there is no cure for bipolar disorder, it is a treatable condition and many people are able to manage their symptoms effectively with the right treatment plan. It is important to stick to the treatment plan prescribed by a mental health professional and to seek help if symptoms worsen or if new symptoms develop.
It’s time for comprehensive treatment for all your mental healthcare needs.
