Therapy for Bipolar
Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. 40% of individuals diagnosed with depression are on the bipolar spectrum. It can be characterized by extreme mood swings, including episodes of manic highs and depressive lows. Going to therapy can help individuals with bipolar disorder learn how to manage their symptoms, develop coping strategies, and improve their overall quality of life.
Bipolar disorder affects some 2 to 5 percent of Americans, but how can they combat an illness when they don’t know what they have?
