Bipolar Disorder


Bipolar disorder can make your mood change dramatically - from feeling very depressed to experiencing what's called mania. 

Depression can make you feel:

  • Sad or irritable
  • Lack of energy or interest in life
  • struggling sleep oversleep
    Sleeping and eating less or more
  • Low self-esteem
  • Thoughts of self-harm or suicide
  • Low sex drive

Whilst mania can make you feel:

  • Energetic or restless
  • Irritable
  • Prone to impulsive decisions
  • Sexually promiscuous
  • Argumentative or agressive
  • Talking quickly

If you have any of these symptoms it’s a good idea to talk to your GP.


You can be prescribed antidepressants or mood stabilisers. You might also benefit from cognitive behavioural therapy, or psycho-education to help you learn about managing the symptoms of bipolar disorder.
