BipolarDo you feel sad and depressed one day and then highly energized and excited the next?  Are you moody, easily distracted or overly agitated?  Do you have trouble sleeping or eating?  Do you abuse drugs or engage in risky or agressive behaviours?  Does it affect your work at school or at the office?  These are some of the symptoms of bipolar disorder.

Bipolar disorder (previously called Manic-Depressive Illness) is a mood disorder that will affect 1% of Canadians in their lifetime.

For more information, read What is Bipolar Disorder?, a brochure from the Mood Disorders Society of Canada or Bipolar Disorder from the Mayo Clinic.

See a list of the free Upcoming Support Programs in Toronto at the Mood Disorders Association of Ontario website.
