Mental illnesses like Bipolar Disorder are age-old, but every day we are learning more about them. And we're learning that treatment goes far beyond just using the right medication.

While we all have our good and bad days, our positive, energetic days and our low, grumpy days, people with Bipolar Disorder have far more severe peaks and valleys and their mood changes negatively impact their everyday lives. Bipolar Disorder (previously known as manic depression) causes severe changes in mood, energy, thinking and behaviour that can last for weeks or months. More information on Bipolar Disorder is available through the SA Depression and Anxiety Group's (SADAG's) Astra Zeneca Bipolar Helpline on 0800 70 80 90.
