Bipolar Disorder

Treatment for Bipolar Disorder

Every year, 2.9% of the U.S. population is diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. Bipolar Disorder is characterized by periods of elevated or irritable mood called mania or hypomania, often accompanied by periods of depression. In severe cases, mania and depression can cause people to experience psychotic symptoms, such as hearing voices or believing themselves to have super human powers.
