Bipolar Disorder

Bi-Polar Disorder is a mental disorder characterized by the dramatic shift between depressed moods to manic symptoms. Manic episodes consist of an individualized increase in energy impulsivity, risky behavior and delusions. Depressed mood consists of feeling sad more often than not, decreased energy, sleep disturbance, and lack of interest in things.

Bipolar disorder can significantly impact daily function. If not treated through a combination therapy of medication and talk therapy, bi-polar disorder has the potential to result in very poor relationships, unemployment, social isolation, and personal injury.

At Duffy Counseling, our treatment of bipolar disorder requires inclusion of psychiatrist and medication compliance. If you do not have a psychiatrist, we can refer one to you.
