Bipolar Disorders

Supporting people through depressive and manic episodes


Bipolar Disorder is a common, but underdiagnosed mental health disorder with a high correlation with suicide and other health problems. It can be complicated to understand as it presents multiple contradictory symptoms and often occurs with other mental health problems and substance use. As a result, the clinician or a family member has to contend with a confusing array of treatment options and possibilities. This class offers ways to better work with the person to identify symptoms earlier and together make prevention and intervention plans.

  • Identify different symptoms and behaviors associated with bipolar disorders

  • Distinguish types of Bipolar Disorder based on symptom patterns
