Manic Episode Assessment Help

Bipolar disorder is an illness consisting of alternating periods (lasting hours, days, weeks, or even months) of depression and manic episodes. Bipolar disorder is frequently misdiagnosed as depression because the manic episodes seem positive. The low periods of depression are usually what prompts a a patient to seek help. Undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, untreated or improperly treated bipolar disorder can have serious consequences for the patient. Manic episodes can lead to poor decision-making and impulsiveness that can wreak havoc or ruin a peron's life. If you are currently diagnosed with depression, but suspect you may actually have bipolar disorder, this test can help you determine if you have had manic episodes between bouts of depression. These questions are based on the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition or DSM-IV.
