What Is Bipolar Disorder?

Last updated 4 years ago

Bipolar disorder is a form of mental illness that causes divergent behavioral issues. The name of this condition stems from the fluctuating manic and depressive episodes that sufferers tend to experience. Though individuals with bipolar disorder may go many months or even years without a manic or depressive episode, when they do suffer from mania or depression, it can wreak substantial consequences on their daily lives. The erratic, rash, and sometimes dangerous behavior of those with bipolar disorder can put at risk their personal relationships, professional achievements, and financial security. However, behavioral health experts can offer bipolar disorder sufferers the treatment they need to successfully manage their episodes. With medication, therapy, or a combination of these measures, patients can control their condition and enjoy fulfilling lives.
