What is bipolar disorder?
“Bipolar disorder is a condition in which individuals experience significant shifts in their moods. This could mean significant emotional highs, which might include manic or hyper manic stages or they may go through a very dull low phase, which is the depressive phase,” Dr. Kamna Chhibber, Head of Department, Mental Health and Behavioral Sciences.
What can one do for help?
It is important to avoid drugs and alcohol, as well as consult a therapist. “Working with a therapist can aid in understanding triggers and monitoring consequences of action and behavior during certain phases, also ensuring that the impact of their actions in relationships and social gathering can be mediated and taken care of.”
Kim Kardashian West thanked fans and friends for expressing concern about the West.
“We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however, we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most. I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this,” she wrote. “Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well being and for your understanding.”
