Friday #Mental Health #MythBuster: Everybody Is Bipolar!

#Bipolar Disorder is a mood disorder whereby people experience distinctive periods and cycles of high and low moods

#By some people’s judgment, a change in emotions is viewed as bipolar but that’s not necessarily true

#Bipolar Disorder is one of the most common mental health disorders along with Depression and Schizophrenia

#People can experience happiness, sadness, joy, irritability all in the same day and not be classified as having Bipolar Disorder

#Some Personality Disorders are sometimes confused with Bipolar Disorder because some of the signs and symptoms are similar

#Adolescents and adults can both be diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder

#Bipolar Disorder can also be accompanied by psychosis in some instances

#Bipolar Disorder is a chronic mental health illness that requires medication and Psychotherapy
