Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes a person to have unusual changes in mood, energy, activity levels, or the ability to perform daily tasks. There are four common types of bipolar disorder. Each involves a clear change in mood, energy, and activity levels. These moods range from periods of extreme ups, elated, and energized behavior (known as manic episodes) to very sad, downs, or hopeless periods (known as depressive episodes).
