Sobre o livro
Bipolar disorder, formerly called manic depression, is
a common condition affecting around 1 in 100 adults
at some point in their lives. Worldwide, it affects about
254 million people, with 2.4 million in the UK.
The exact nature of someone’s illness will be unique
to them. These moods typically swing between low or
‘depressive’, with feelings of intense unhappiness and
despair, and high or ‘manic’, with feelings of supreme
confidence, euphoria and boundless energy. Having
bipolar disorder can be a frightening, bewildering
experience, especially before diagnosis and treatment.
This book will help readers understand bipolar disorder and
the kind of help available for the condition. It will explain
the causes of bipolar disorder, its symptoms and effects,
how a diagnosis is made and how it’s possible to lead a
happy and fulfilling life by managing the condition with
the correct treatments. There will also be information for
friends and family close to someone with bipolar disorder.
