Bipolar (Manic Depression) Screening Test
Many people who have a Bipolar Disorder, also known as Manic Depression (extreme highs and lows) don't think there is anything wrong, especially when they are in the hyper (manic) phase of the illness. Typically, when the person is in a more manic phase, their family and/or friends are concerned about what is happening. A professional would ask the client or family members some of the questions below. The you/they sentence structure is for you to answer for yourself or as a concerned individual.
The following questions represent many of the areas a professional would be evaluating. To get an accurate screening, it is very important for you to answer each and every question honestly. As you read through these questions, remember that we all may have experienced one or more bad moments or bad days. A short time means a few hours up to a couple of days; not weeks or months.
Your responses to these questions are strictly confidential and are not saved and/or recorded by Resurrection Health Care or any other entity.
