Types of Bipolar Disorder in Adults

We aim to comprehensively understand these categories to better assist individuals in managing their conditions.

Bipolar I Disorder

People diagnosed with Bipolar I Disorder undergo manic episodes that last for a minimum of 7 days or are of such intensity that immediate hospitalisation becomes necessary.

Bipolar II Disorder

Bipolar II Disorder involves a recurring pattern of depressive and hypomanic episodes. Hypomania, a less severe mania, is identified by increased energy, a heightened mood, and elevated activity levels.

Cyclothymic Disorder (Cyclothymia)

Cyclothymic Disorder is recognised by persistent mood fluctuations, encompassing multiple periods of hypomania and mild depression that extend for at least two years.

Other Bipolar Disorders

These classifications encompass bipolar symptoms that do not precisely meet the criteria for Bipolar I, Bipolar II, or Cyclothymic Disorder but still involve noteworthy mood disturbances.

Signs and Symptoms are:

    • Elevated Mood
    • Decreased Need for Sleep
    • Impulsivity
    • Depressive Mood
