What Is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder that affects a person’s ability to regulate their emotions. It is often characterized by episodes of mania and depression. Mania is a period of high energy, elevated mood, and increased activity. During a manic episode, a person may be overly talkative, have grandiose thoughts or ideas, experience racing thoughts, engage in risky behavior, and require less sleep. Depression, on the other hand, is a period of low energy, sadness, and hopelessness. During a depressive episode, a person may have trouble sleeping, experience a loss of appetite, feel fatigued, have difficulty concentrating, and may even have suicidal thoughts or behaviors.

Bipolar disorder can develop as a result of a variety of factors, such as genetics, biological differences in the brain, stress, or trauma.

Recognizing the signs and symptoms of bipolar disorder in adolescents can be challenging, as they may be mistaken for normal teenage behavior. However, some of the common signs to look out for include:

  • Extreme mood swings
  • Impulsivity
  • Irritability
  • Rapid speech
  • Reduced need for sleep
  • Increased irritability
  • Poor judgment
  • A loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyable

Many teens also experience academic and social problems, which can lead to isolation and feelings of hopelessness.

Some of the therapies and services that help clients in our adolescent bipolar disorder treatment program include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy – This therapy helps individuals identify and change unhealthy behaviors and thought patterns that may be contributing to their symptoms.
  • Family therapy – Family therapy is an important part of treatment, as it helps families understand the condition and learn how to best support their loved one
  • Dialectical behavior therapy – This type of therapy helps participants learn how to regulate their emotions and cope with difficult situations in a healthier way.
