Mental Health


Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a chronic mental disorder that affects a person’s mood. It is characterized by the presence of alternating episodes of mania and depression, which are periods of extreme mood states.

Tips & Info

There are two main types of bipolar disorder:

1. Bipolar disorder type I:

It is characterized by the presence of at least one manic episode. A manic episode is a prolonged period of elevated mood or intense irritability, accompanied by symptoms such as increased energy, decreased need for sleep, impulsive behavior, racing thoughts, and grandiosity. Manic episodes can be severe and may require hospitalization.

2. Bipolar disorder type II:

In this type, depressive episodes are more predominant than manic episodes. It is characterized by the presence of major depressive episodes and hypomanic episodes. A hypomanic episode is similar to a manic episode, but less severe. Although there may be increased energy and elevated mood, it does not reach the level of severity and functional impairment of a manic episode.

Bipolar disorder can have a significant impact on daily life, interpersonal relationships, and occupational functioning. Additionally, individuals with bipolar disorder may experience periods of stability between episodes, during which their mood is within a normal range.

The causes of bipolar disorder are not fully understood, but it is believed that genetic factors, chemical imbalances in the brain, and environmental factors play a significant role in its development.

The treatment of bipolar disorder typically involves a combination of medication and psychotherapeutic therapy. Mood stabilizers, such as lithium, are commonly prescribed to help control manic and depressive episodes. Additionally, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and supportive therapy can help individuals with bipolar disorder develop coping strategies, stress management skills, and treatment adherence.

It is important to note that bipolar disorder is a chronic condition, but with proper management, many individuals can lead fulfilling and functional lives. If you believe you may be experiencing symptoms of bipolar disorder, it is recommended to seek professional help for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.At conexionMED we have a group of qualified professionals to guide you and provide you with the best possible treatment, do not hesitate to contact us.
