Bipolar Disorder

Symptoms / Diagnosis


Coping and Support

From Marcia Purse, your Guide to Bipolar Disorder
I've got a mixed bag for you this week - a new study shedding light on women whose symptoms get worse during the premenstrual period; a look at some factors that may cause a bipolar person to become violent; a chance to bring bipolar disorder into the public limelight; and another story of mental healthcare being neglected by a state government. Below the fold, information on Bipolar III Disorder, and at right, some discussions hand-picked to share. Don't miss "February."
