Bipolar Disorder (previously referred to as manic depression) is a medical illness that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels. It can cause your mood to swing from very high (mania) to very low (depression). Bipolar Disorder usually first develops in late teens or early adulthood.
Most people with Bipolar Disorder require some sort of lifelong treatment. While medication is one key element in successful treatment, psychotherapy, support, and education are also essential components.
