The ability of people to function productively and cope effectively with the rigors of daily life depends on their state of health, which the World Health Organization’s (WHO) defines as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Sadly, there are many out there who suffer from illnesses that prevent them from living normally, such as those diagnosed with Bipolar disorder.
Bipolar disorder is a mental illness that affects roughly 5 million people in the US, or around 2.6 percent of the population. It is characterized by extreme mood swings such as manic “high” periods; depressive “low” periods; or both, episodes that patients find difficult to regulate.
To help patients with Bipolar disorder regain control of their moods, different treatment regimens have been developed.

Although these techniques have been found effective, there is no single approach to treating the illness.
Here are the different ways of treating Bipolar disorder.
