Bipolar Disorder

Season 7, Episode 4 of 13

Once called manic depression, bipolar disorder is a mental illness caused by a chemical change in the brain. People who suffer from this disease often have unusual mood changes, energy shifts, and difficulty with daily activities. Dramatic symptoms can result in loss of jobs, relationships, and even suicide. Although there is no cure and it usually lasts a lifetime, bipolar disorder can be effectively treated.
