Bipolar disorders are mood disorders that cause people to swing from one emotional end of the spectrum to the other. Because the mental illness combines depression and mania, the symptoms will vary depending on the stage a person is currently in, but they mirror the common signs of depression and mania. Bipolar disorders are serious problems that should be treated. Psychotherapy including counseling can be a good way to get help with any of the various types of bipolar disorders. Here is some more information on the types of bipolar disorders and the symptoms of the mental illness.
