Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that causes an intense disturbance in a person’s ability to regulate their mood. The two types of bipolar disorder, bipolar I and bipolar II, bring about fluctuating periods of elated mood (mania) and low mood (depression).
Depending on the individual and the type of bipolar disorder they are experiencing, the duration and intensity of these mood episodes will differ. But everyone who struggles with this mental illness will experience an interruption in functioning that, left untreated, will likely cause them to need professional help. Residential treatment can help you learn to manage your symptoms and
regain control of your life in a safe, supportive setting.
If you are struggling with untreated bipolar disorder, you may feel like your life is spiraling out of control. You may feel unable to see to your responsibilities at home, work, or school, and you may experience strain in significant relationships with friends, family, and romantic partners. There are many ways that bipolar disorder can negatively affect your mental, emotional, and physical health, and without effective treatment, these damages will only worsen over time.
