Bipolar Disorder Therapists
Bipolar Disorder is an illness characterized by cycles of depression and mania that can vary from weeks to months to even years. During these times of intense highs and lows, things like sleep problems, erratic behavior, increased/decreased activity, and intense mood shifts occur. There are multiple types of bipolar disorder, and the symptoms can vary a bit from person to person, but the defining characteristic is the cycle of intense, manic activity to much lower, depressed states. Understanding the patterns of this disorder and how to cope with them can help with symptoms.
