What Is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive disorder, is a mental illness that causes extreme mood swings. People with bipolar disorder may go through periods of mania, during which they feel abnormally happy or energetic. They may also experience periods of depression, during which they feel sad and hopeless.  

Bipolar Mania

Bipolar mania is a state of abnormally high energy, mood, and activity level. Bipolar mania can last for weeks or months and lead to reckless behavior, such as spending sprees, impulsive sex, and substance abuse.

Bipolar Depression

Bipolar depression is a state of sadness or low energy that can last for weeks or months. Bipolar depression can lead to fatigue, trouble concentrating, and thoughts of suicide. Bipolar disorder is a severe mental illness that requires treatment. There are three forms of Bipolar disorder: Bipolar I Disorder, Bipolar II Disorder, and Cyclothymic Disorder. 

Bipolar I Disorder

Episodes of mania and depression characterize Bipolar I Disorder. 

With Bipolar I Disorder, the severity of mania usually requires hospitalization for treatment and lasts more than seven days. 

In addition, periods of depression require immediate attention and last at least two weeks.  

Bipolar II Disorder

Bipolar II disorder is characterized by episodes of mania and hypomania (a less severe form of mania). 

Cyclothymic Disorder

Cyclothymic disorder is characterized by episodes of mania and depression that are not as severe as those seen with Bipolar I and II. 

In general, the symptoms of mania and depression are not as intense or long-lasting. 

A person’s life may be significantly impacted by Bipolar disorder. Often it can interfere with work, school, and personal relationships.

the root causes of bipolar disorder

What Causes Bipolar Disorder?

Unfortunately, the exact cause of Bipolar Disorder is unknown. However, it is believed to be caused by a combination of factors.


People with a family history of bipolar disorder may be more likely to develop the condition. 

Brain Function

In addition, studies indicate that there may be a link between bipolar disorder and brain function. 

People with bipolar disorder may have abnormalities in how their brains process certain chemicals.  


Environmental factors, such as stress or trauma, may also play a role in the development of Bipolar Disorder. 

Additionally, stressful life events, such as the death of a loved one or losing a job, can trigger bipolar disorder in people who are vulnerable to the condition. 

Bipolar Disorder Treatment

How Is Bipolar Disorder Treated?

There is no cure for bipolar disorder, but it can be effectively managed with medication and therapy. 


Mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, and antidepressants are commonly used to treat Bipolar Disorders. 

Cognitive Behavioral Health

Therapy can also help treat bipolar disorder. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that has been shown to be particularly effective in treating bipolar disorder. 

CBT can help people with bipolar disorder learn how to cope with their symptoms and manage their condition.

Light Therapy

Light therapy is sometimes used to treat bipolar disorder. Light therapy involves exposure to artificial light.
