Managing episodes of low mood and mania | Bipolar Disorder

Are you experiencing intense mood swings, including unusually elevated or irritable mood, followed by periods of low mood? Do you find yourself engaging in impulsive or risky behaviours during manic episodes?

Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition characterized by intense mood swings, including periods of elevated mood or mania and periods of depression. Manic episodes may bring heightened energy levels, impulsivity, racing thoughts, and reduced need for sleep. In contrast, depressive episodes involve feelings of sadness, hopelessness, fatigue, and changes in appetite or sleep patterns. Effective management of these episodes often consists of a combination of medication and psychological therapy. Your doctor may prescribe different medications to treat your symptoms, and CBT can offer valuable strategies, support, and insight into managing episodes of depression and mania.

With the right treatment and support, individuals with bipolar disorder can effectively manage their symptoms and lead fulfilling lives.
