Bipolar Disorder Testing
Everyone can experience a shift in mood where they become angry, sad or elated. When someone experiences dramatic shifts in the way they feel that negatively impacts their life, it can be debilitating. Bipolar disorder involves episodes of mania and depression that can cause significant transitions in mood and behavior.

If you or a loved one may be living with bipolar disorder, our compassionate mental health professionals are here to help. We provide bipolar disorder testing and treatment all under one roof.

What Causes Bipolar Disorder?
Mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder, tend to run in families and are believed to result from chemical imbalances that affect how signals are transferred to the brain. This can lead to manic episodes, which are characterized by decreased need for sleep, feeling talkative and energized, unrestrained buying sprees, and sexual indiscretions. Those episodes can last for several months, followed by months of insomnia or increased sleep, loss of energy, fatigue, loss of appetite, and depression.
Bipolar disorders are categorized into three main groups:
- Bipolar I Disorder
- Bipolar II Disorder
- Cyclothymic Disorder
Through bipolar disorder testing, we can distinguish which type of bipolar disorder you or your loved one may be experiencing. Then we can recommend personalized treatment to gain control over these issues. We will work closely with other treating professionals (e.g., your primary care physician or psychiatrist) to form a solid treatment team to help get you back on track to managing your mood effectively.
