Is your life a roller coaster of highs and lows? Do your moods vacillate between profound sadness and euphoria?

If so, you may be suffering from bipolar disorder, a complex illness that involves the mood centers of the brain and affects as many as two million Americans.

Find out:

What causes bipolar disorder and who is at risk
The symptoms of both manic and depressive episodes and their common triggers
How to get the very specific kind of help you need and why early diagnosis is your best bet for successful treatment
The latest facts on successfully managing bipolar disorder...why alternative therapies such as meditation and hypnotherapy can actually be dangerous to bipolar sufferers...plus news from the front lines of research
