Bi-polar disorder

Bi.pol.ar / dis.or.der

n.noun

Mayo Clinic provides the following definition of ‘bi-polar disorder’: “Bipolar disorder sometimes called manic-depressive disorder — is associated with mood swings that range from the lows of depression to the highs of mania.”

People suffering from bi-polar disorder may be misunderstood and have difficulty building relationships with other people. With proper medication and treatment, a bi-polar disorder can be controlled, and the afflicted individual may live a normal, healthy, lifestyle. However, if not properly managed, bi-polar disorder can quickly take over a person’s life, and lead them down a path of self-destruction

Treatment for young adults struggling with bi-polar disorder

Thankfully, for young adults who suffer from bi-polar disorder, specialized transitional programs offer hope and rehabilitation. When traditional therapy isn’t effective in treating a young adult’s bi-polar disorder, a transitional program may be the most effective option to consider.
