Learn More About Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder (BD or BPD) is a serious mental illness that causes severe high and low moods and also alters behaviour, energy, thinking, and sleep pattern.

People with BPD experience extreme mood swings; one moment they feel overjoyed and extremely energetic, and the next moment they feel sad and sluggish. Also known as manic depression, “manic” denotes the period during which the person feels unnaturally excited and happy (may involve recklessness and delusions too), whereas “depression” refers to the low phase when the person experiences symptoms similar to clinical depression. These episodes are recurrent and may last from several days to weeks.

Researchers are yet to identify the exact cause for the development of BD. However, it is believed that the disorder may be caused by a combination of different factors, such as genetics and environment. BPD is a recurrent chronic ailment that requires long-term treatment and ongoing care. Although proper diagnosis and identifying a suitable treatment plan can be a time-consuming process, BPD is treatable. With proper treatment, people suffering from BPD can lead a normal and productive life.
