What Is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is a general term that can refer to several types of this mental health condition. The three most common types of bipolar disorder are bipolar I disorder, bipolar II disorder, and cyclothymic disorder. 

Depending on the type of bipolar disorder a person develops, they may experience manic, hypomanic, and depressive episodes or symptoms.

To meet the clinical criteria for bipolar I disorder, a person must have at least one manic episode. They may also have hypomanic or major depressive episodes.

People who have bipolar II disorder will have at least one major depressive disorder and at least one hypomanic disorder. 

Those who develop cyclothymic disorder will experience several hypomanic symptoms that don’t qualify as a full hypomanic episode. They will also develop several depressive symptoms that don’t qualify as major depressive disorder.

How Is Bipolar Disorder Treated in Atlanta?

Bipolar treatment in Atlanta may include therapy, medication, and various other services as needed. 

Therapy can help a person develop effective strategies for managing the symptoms of bipolar disorder. Therapy sessions are safe and supportive places where people can also discuss their feelings, process their experiences, and receive focused feedback from an experienced professional.

Depending on the nature and severity of the bipolar disorder symptoms a person develops, certain prescription medications can also be a beneficial element of care. If our assessment indicates that medication can help a patient, we’ll discuss the features and benefits of each prescription medication with the patient prior to prescribing them.

Bipolar treatment in Atlanta may also involve a variety of additional services, which are described in greater detail near the bottom of this page.
