Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder involving extreme swings of mood from mania to depression (highs and lows). Everyone’s experience of bipolar disorder is different.

Symptoms include:

Some people have more depressive episodes, while others have more manic ones. Sometimes a manic episode involves a mixture of depressive features. This is known as a mixed episode. Some people have long periods of stability between episodes, while others experience them more frequently. The duration and severity of the episodes also differs from person to person.
