Introduction Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder that causes unique changes in mood, energy levels and ability to perform day to day tasks. The National Institute of Mental Health’s website states that people suffering from bipolar disorder experience “mood episodes”. Which can either be expressed as overly elated, known as a manic episode, or a state of extreme sadness known as depressive episodes. Bipolar disorder affects approximately 3% of the population in the United States (U.S Department of Health and Human Services, 2009). Treatments for this disorder vary but are effective in helping individuals better manage their mood swings and episodes.
