Bipolar Disorder or Another Bad Day?
Some people are unsure when their mental health symptoms become a treatable issue. While it’s true that you may experience mild mood swings, bouts of depression, or times of high excitement and focus, few people experience these things regularly and on a cyclical basis unless there is a mental health disorder present. Some signs that your symptoms may be more than a passing phase include:
- Regular patterns or cycles of mood swings
- Experiencing symptoms for more than six months
- The symptoms disrupt your ability to work or function
- Hallucinations of any kind (e.g., visual, auditory, etc.)
