Bipolar Disorder Test : Do I Have Bipolar Disorder?

bipolar disorder

We all experience changes in mood — but what if these changes are sudden and last for days instead of hours?

How do you know when your mood changes are a sign of something more?

People with bipolar disorder often experience extreme shifts in their mood — like highs or lows — that can last for weeks or longer.

This online screening is not a definitive tool. It will not conclusively guarantee that you may be diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

However, it can be useful if you’re experiencing symptoms and want to determine if additional help or support from a mental health professional is the right option for you.

Only a trained medical professional, such as a doctor or mental health professional, can help you determine the next best steps for you.
