Mood disorders

This condition is generally categorised by extreme mood swings and fluctuating energy levels. People with bipolar disorder often alternate between feeling intensely happy and highly motivated, to experiencing sudden drops into severe depression, including feelings of helplessness and worthlessness.

Symptoms of the elevated state can include high levels of agitation, irritability and aggressiveness; rapid thoughts and speech; less interest in sleep; risk-taking; impulsiveness; hallucinations and delusions or unrealistic plans; high levels of creativity and activity; and appetite disturbance resulting in rapid weight fluctuations.
Bipolar disorder can be managed with the right ongoing treatment, allowing people with this condition to enjoy healthy and stable lives.
