What Is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder that is characterized by dramatic shifts in mood. Each individual that has a diagnosis of bipolar disorder will have varying symptoms and varying levels of severity. Psychopharmacology (medication) in combination with psychotherapy (talk therapy) in either group or individual formats is suggested for most individuals with this diagnosis.
