Bipolar disorder, formerly known as manic-depressive illness, is characterized by mood swings that range from the highs of mania to the lows of depression. These shifts can be severe and can affect an individual’s ability to function daily.
While the exact cause of bipolar disorder remains unknown, a mix of genetics, brain structure, and environmental factors is believed to influence its development. Traumatic events, significant life changes, or even certain medications can trigger episodes in predisposed individuals.
Managing bipolar disorder requires a comprehensive approach. At Mentally Healthy Care, our therapeutic sessions offer individuals the tools to understand their mood patterns, develop coping strategies, and maintain emotional balance, ensuring they lead fulfilling, empowered lives.
