Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder (BD) is a condition in which a young person has extreme changes of mood – periods of being unusually happy (known as ‘mania’ or ‘hypomania’), and periods of being unusually sad (‘depression’). Everyone has times in their life when they feel very happy (such as when you are about to go on holiday) or very sad (such as when your pet dies). But it only becomes a disorder when the mood changes are unusual or extreme. This can range from being unusually happy (known as mania or hypomania), to being unusually sad (depression) for no apparent cause. The mood-swings are way beyond what would be considered normal for a particular individual, and are out of keeping with their personality.

How common is it?
Bipolar disorder is extremely rare in young children, but there are quite a few studies that suggest that it may start in teenage years and in early adult life. It affects about one in 100 adults. Although the causes are not fully understood, bipolar disorder tends to run in families. In people who have bipolar disorder, episodes may happen at times of stress or disrupted sleep.

How can Bipolar Disorder be treated?
Talking treatments (also known as ‘psychological therapies’)

These may include different types of therapies like:
Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) – The young person, sometimes with their family, learns to understand the links between their feelings and thoughts and how this affects their behaviour (see our factsheet on CBT).
Family-focused treatment (family therapy) – The whole family can be helped to reduce stress, solve problems and communicate better.

Medication plays an important role in the treatment of bipolar disorder, especially if episodes are severe. In the initial stages of the illness, medication helps to reduce the symptoms. The choice of medication can depend upon the type of episode (manic or depressed). Everyone is different, and so the type of medication that is recommended will also be different.

The three main types of medication that are helpful are:
Antipsychotic medication: risperidone, olanzapine and aripiprazole are types of antipsychotics usually used for high/manic episodes.
Mood stabilizers: Lithium is a type of mood stabilizer to help stabilise mood between and during episodes.
Antidepressants: fluoxetine is a type of antidepressant used for the low/depressive episodes.
Medications can have mild or even severe side-effects. Your psychiatrist will be able to advise about what they are and about what can be done to help. The risk of side-effects needs to be balanced against the risk of the damaging effects of the illness on a person’s life.

It is important that medications are not taken only when the problems are serious. If you have had more than one severe episode of illness, staying on medication is important to reduce the risk of further episodes. Medication may be needed for months or even years. Some people may, under medical supervision, be able to stop their medication when they have recovered and have felt well for a while.
