Bipolar is a type of mental illness that is characterized by episodes of mood disturbances when the person experiences either mania or depression. There are two types of the condition known as bipolar type I and II. Bipolar type I involves depression and mania whereas bipolar II involves hypomania, a less extreme form of mania.
When a person suffers from the depressive side of the bipolar spectrum, they are likely to display the following symptoms:
The mania of bipolar can last for at least a week, during which time the individual may experience any of the following symptoms:
When someone experiences a manic episode, they may get involved in risk-taking behavior that is out of character for them. However, it is worth noting that mania does not always result in aggressive or violent behavior.
It is important that people seek treatment for both types of bipolar as they are long-term conditions with the potential for significant impact on quality of life. Once the symptoms of a mental illness have been recognized, it is then possible to reach out to centers such as CASA Recovery for help in achieving long-term recovery.
