How To Tell what Mania and Hypomania Really Look like

Posted on July 31, 2019 by Therapist Nicki

Bipolar disorder is often very misunderstood. There’s a common misconception that anything unstable must be bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is really defined by the presence of mania or hypomania. Depression is present in both bipolar disorder and unipolar depression. So if you are at the stage of wondering do I have bipolar disorder? The first question you and your doctor or therapist have to answer is have you had a manic episode? Because mania is the defining characteristic of bipolar disorder.

In this video I also answer the question can your bipolar diagnosis change from bipolar 1 to bipolar 2?

In today’s video I will define the difference between mania and hypomania and I’ll answer the question of can your diagnosis change between bipolar one and bipolar two? This video is to help you understand what mania is, it’s not to help you diagnose yourself. If you think you may have bipolar disorder, you should see a doctor or therapist to be evaluated.
