Beverly Hills Therapy for Bipolar Disorder
Typical behaviors of anxiety disorders are:
- Bipolar I Disorder: This is defined by manic episodes lasting seven days or more in duration. Often, depressive episodes also occur at this time, sometimes lasting two weeks or more. The manic episodes can be so severe that they require hospitalization so that the person suffering from them doesn’t hurt themselves or anyone else around them. The manic episodes are so intense that they can cause a break from reality, or psychosis, in some cases.
- Bipolar II Disorder: This is also defined by similar episodes of mania and depression as occur in bipolar I, but with less severity and intensity. The episodes do persist, but may only last for a day or two and symptoms often do not require hospitalization. It is still a very scary mental health condition, however it is not as severe as Bipolar I. Individuals who suffer from Bipolar II are also more likely to experience longer depressive periods, and sometimes, more intense ones, which can cause impairment in their daily lives.
- Cyclothymic Disorder: This particular expression of bipolar disorder is characterized by periods of mania and periods of depression lasting for at least 2 years (or 1 year if the sufferer is an adolescent or a child) and are induced by drugs used for treatment for a different condition (the bipolar disorder is essentially a side effect). The symptoms in these cases are generally not as severe and in fact do not fully meet the requirements for a manic or hypomanic (less severe mania), or depressive episodes characteristic of Bipolar I or II.
