Understanding Bipolar Disorders


Understanding bipolar can be challenging for those who have a bipolar disorder and for those around them. Understanding may be better (or worse?) now under the new classifications from DSM-5, as there are four types of bipolar disorder: bipolar I, bipolar II, cyclothymic disorder, and other specified disorder. Exploring the differences may help with diagnosis and treatment for yourself or others.

Here is an article that explains bipolar using the new DSM-5 classifications. The article can be found in this month’s edition of bp magazine.
