We Take the Guesswork Out of Psychiatry

If you or a loved one experiences extreme swings in moods, energy and activity levels, and the ability to get things done in your daily life, you’re not alone. Nearly 6 million adults in America are affected by bipolar disorder, which can also affect adolescents and children. Bipolar disorder is characterized by cycling symptoms of mania and depression.

Manic episodes are characterized by symptoms including:

  • Abnormally elevated moods
  • Increased energy levels
  • Decreased need for sleep
  • Racing thoughts
  • Poor judgment
  • Risk-taking behavior

Depressive episodes are characterized by symptoms including:

  • Negative moods
  • Feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, guilt, and helplessness
  • Decreased energy levels
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Thoughts of suicide

Left untreated, symptoms usually worsen, with 39% of people with bipolar disorder eventually being hospitalized—more than any other mental health condition! And people with bipolar disorder are 15 times more likely to attempt suicide than the general population.

When dramatic mood and energy level changes get in the way of work, school, relationships, or everyday functioning—that’s when you need seek help.

Unfortunately, treatment doesn’t always work. In part, this is because bipolar disorder isn’t a simple or single disorder. One size does NOT fit all. Treatment that works for one person won’t work for everybody, and it could even make you worse!

Getting the Right Treatment Depends on the Right Diagnosis

Bipolar disorder is often misdiagnosed as ADD/ADHD or depression. Getting an accurate diagnosis is critical because medications for ADD/ADHD, for example, can dramatically worsen bipolar symptoms.

At Amen Clinics, we use leading-edge brain imaging technology to help us identify the 4 distinct types of bipolar disorder.

  • Bipolar I disorder
  • Bipolar II disorder
  • Cyclothymic disorder
  • Bipolar disorder not otherwise specified (NOS)

Knowing your type is so important because each type requires individualized treatment. With the world’s largest database of functional brain scans — 150,000 and growing — from patients from all 50 states and 120 countries, our physicians are able to more accurately diagnose bipolar disorder and related conditions than any other healthcare professionals.
