Bipolar Disorder is associated with episodes of mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs. These episodes can last from days to months at a time.

 

Manic episodes may include symptoms such as high energy, reduced need for sleep, and loss of touch with reality. Depressive episodes include low energy, low motivation, and loss of interest in daily activities. Suicidal thoughts may also present.

 

Treatment is usually lifelong and often involves a combination of medications and psychotherapy.
