Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that can cause extreme emotional highs and lows that affect about one percent of teenagers and about one in forty adults. People with bipolar experience moods ranging from periods of unusually high energy followed by extraordinarily low and depressed periods.
These different “phases” are manic or hypomanic episodes, depressive episodes, or mixed states. During the mania phase, people may feel euphoric, overconfident, and very energetic, whereas, during the depressive phase, they may feel sad, hopeless, and struggle with fatigue.
This type of bipolar disorder is characterized by manic episodes that are more severe and last longer than in other types of bipolar disorder, along with periods of major depression.
Unlike Bipolar I, this type does not involve full-blown manic episodes but rather hypomanic symptoms, ranging from increased energy and euphoria to high irritability or hostility. It also includes periods of major depression lasting at least two weeks or longer.
Characterized by numerous periods of brief hypomania followed swiftly by prolonged depressive phases without any distinct breaks between them. People struggling with this condition usually present moderate mood elevation, yet avoidance toward seeking treatment
This type is characterized by an extended period of depression and mania simultaneously, accompanied by feelings of intense anxiety and irritability.
Rapid cycling is a form of bipolar disorder in which a person experiences four or more episodes within a year. This can include both manic and depressive episodes occurring back-to-back with little to no “happy” period between them.
