Bipolar Disorder

What Is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is a serious mental illness. People who have it experience dramatic mood swings. They may go from overly energetic, "high" and/or irritable, to sad and hopeless, and then back again. They often have normal moods in between. The up feeling is called mania. The down feeling is depression.

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness , is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in a person's mood, energy, and ability to function.
