Bipolar Affective

Disorder

 

It causes extreme mood swings that include emotional highs (mania or hypomania) and lows (depression). These mood swings are more severe than the normal ups and downs in mood and can last from a few days to several months.

Increased awareness and early detection of this disorder are very important. It doesn’t get better on its own. Getting treatment from a mental health professional can help get the symptoms under control.
