    What is Bipolar Disorder?

    I found this paper titled, "What is Bipolar Disorder?" on the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) website that in my opinion, was one of the most extensive and informative of its kind that I've seen. Plus, though I haven't read the entire thing yet, what I have read is easy to follow.

    I think it would be good for both those with or without bipolar to read.
