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.
