"Formerly known as manic depression, bipolar disorder is defined as a mental health condition that causes a person to experience extreme highs (mania) and lows (depression).There are two common forms of bipolar disorder bipolar I, which affects men and women equally, and bipolar II, which primarily affects women.Bipolar I is defined by manic episodes that last at least 7 days, and are so severe that the person needs urgent medical care. Depressive episodes usually occur after period of mania and last around 2 weeks.Bipolar II is defined by a pattern of depressive episodes and hypomanic episodes, which are periods of mania that are less severe than Bipolar I.While bipolar depression has no known cure, there are several treatment options available that can alleviate symptoms and create a more balanced state for someone suffering from bipolar depression."
