Bipolar disorder (or manic-depressive disorder) is a mood disorder defined by abnormally elevated levels of energy, cognition, and mood. If this describes the behavior of you or a loved one, consider treatment from the highly trained psychiatrists and clinicians at Fort Lauderdale Behavioral Health Center.
People diagnosed as bipolar often experience elevated states of depression and mania. This type of person is either very happy or very sad, with little to no in-between.
Symptoms are very powerful, can damage relationships, and make it hard to attend work or school. They can also be physically and emotionally dangerous to the diagnosed person, who can become so depressed that they try to hurt themselves and—in extreme cases—attempt suicide.
