Signs and symptoms

Bipolar disorders are a group of disorders characterised by episodes of mania, or hypomania, and depression. In between episodes, mild symptoms of mania and/or depression may be present. Bipolar I disorder is determined by the existence of mania, which may include psychotic features, while bipolar II disorder is determined by less severe hypomania. Cyclothymic disorder is an overall milder form of bipolar disorder, however symptoms occur fairly often and constantly. Click on the links or the tabs below to access the information, or browse and search via the section on the left.
