It is a disorder involving an alteration in mood from excess happiness to depression.

People who have bipolar disorder can have periods in which they feel overly happy and energized and other periods of feeling very sad, hopeless, and sluggish. In between those periods, they usually feel normal. You can think of the highs and the lows as two “poles” of mood, which is why it’s called “bipolar” disorder.

Individuals suffering from Bipolar mood disorder are at the highest risk of attempting suicide.
