Bipolar Disorder – Diagnosis and Treatment


Bipolar disorder is a mental health disease characterized by severe changes in mood. People with bipolar disorder experience episodes of mania (an elevated mood) or episodes of depression (a low mood) [1]. It is used to be referred to as manic depression and bipolar disease.

Bipolar disease is not an uncommon disorder. A study was done by the national institute of mental health and it was discovered that 2.8 percent of U.S adults or over 5 million people have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. There is no cure for bipolar disorder, but treatments are given to regulate mood episodes.
