Bipolar Disorder

Life is full of ups and downs. It’s only natural to experience mood swings. However, for those suffering with bipolar disorder, emotions can seem like an out-of-control rollercoaster ride. Bipolar disorder is characterized by cycles of manic episodes, in which an individual feels wired and irritable, and depressive episodes, in which life seems sad and hopeless. These drastic changes in mood and energy can take a serious toll on the affected individual’s physical and psychological health. Without proper treatment, bipolar disorder can be debilitating for life. But it is entirely treatable.

At Brookhaven Hospital’s: RENEWAL Christian Treatment program, we understand that asking for help can be a difficult step. While many programs are equipped to offer you medical and psychological help, few programs address your deeper spiritual needs. In addition to offering you advanced bipolar disorder treatment, RENEWAL incorporates your faith into your recovery process. We offer compassionate, faith-based care designed to strengthen your mind, body and spirit.

The Manic Phase

The manic phase of bipolar disorder is characterized by excessive amounts of energy, restlessness and extreme irritability. Some other signs and symptoms include:

The Depressive Phase

The manic phase of bipolar disorder is only temporary. In time, the affected individual will enter a depressive phase. During this period, the affected individual’s mood and energy level can appear to be the polar opposite of their manic phases. The depression can manifest in a number of ways including:

The ups and downs associated with bipolar disorder can make it difficult to maintain jobs, friendships and romantic relationships. You might feel helpless, but with the right guidance and care, bipolar disorder is completely treatable.
