Bipolar disorder is a mental disorder in which people experience serious shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, concentration, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. Moods can range from periods of extremely “up,” elated, irritable, or manic episodes to very “down,” sad, indifferent, or depressive periods.
