Bipolar Disorder

Did you know more than 2 million American adults have bipolar disorder?

Bipolar disorder causes dramatic mood swings—from feeling overly “high” and/or irritable to sad and hopeless, and then back again, often with periods of normal mood in between. Severe changes in energy and behavior go along with these episodes. The periods of highs and lows are called episodes of mania  and depression. It is often not recognized as an illness, and people may suffer for years before it is properly diagnosed and treated.
