Bipolar disorder

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings, including episodes of mania and depression. Symptoms of mania can include high energy, decreased need for sleep, and impulsive behavior, while symptoms of depression can include low mood, fatigue, and feelings of worthlessness. 

When is it necessary to see a doctor?

If you experience persistent symptoms, it's time to see a mental health professional. A doctor can diagnose bipolar disorder and provide treatment options such as medication, therapy, or a combination of both. Treatment for bipolar disorder typically involves a combination of medication and therapy, including mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, and psychotherapy.
