IDENTIFYING THE BEST PSYCHIATRIC TREATMENT FOR YOU
Bipolar Disorder Online Psychiatric Treatment
This is another disorder that has gotten a lot of coverage in the media like OCD, but is also quite misunderstood.
Bipolar Disorder is characterized by episodes of depression that can look just like any severe depression but also with episodes of elevated mood and energy known as mania (or in milder forms, hypomania).
During manic episodes, individuals can feel quite well and be tremendously productive but these episodes don’t last and are often followed by a terrible crash.
Once again, there is good treatment available but it requires regular follow up with a trained psychiatrist. I manage many patients with Bipolar Disorder and they are doing quite well.
Is Online therapy an option for Bipolar disorders?
Many patients with bipolar disorder may be candidates for Online therapy. As a HIPAA-complaint process, online therapy for bipolar disorders allows for the safe, secure, and private treatment of any disorder.
How Many People Have Bipolar Disorder?
It is estimated that 2.6 percent of American adults have this disorder, which translates into around 5.7 million people. In other words, two or three people out of 100 have this disorder.
Research is much less clear when it comes to younger people. While some believe that as many as 750,000 children have bipolar disorder, there is no consensus on the diagnostic criteria used to diagnose children.
