When you are struggling with Bipolar it can be very difficult to work out if something is wrong because your moods may be impacting the way you are thinking.
If you answered yes to more than 5 questions, in both Part A (Depressive Mood Symptoms) and Part B (Elevated Mood Symptoms) of the Bipolar Disorder self-test, your responses suggest that bipolar disorder may be a real problem for you, and that you could benefit from having an assessment by a health professional specialising in bipolar disorder.
Good on you for being so courageous, and really taking an honest look at the way that you have been thinking, feeling and behaving. We know you will have heard it before, but it is true that admitting that there may be a problem, even if only to yourself, is the first and most vital step you can take toward creating the change you want in your life.
The next step happens when you talk about your problem with another person. Seeking professional help is your best chance to address the issues you face in dealing with bipolar disorder, and managing your alternating depressed and elevated moods.

The goal of our self-tests is not to provide you with a diagnosis for yourself or for someone you care about. Instead, they are an opportunity for you to better understand how a behaviour might be impacting upon your life or the life of your family. Use these tests to enhance your awareness of what the problem might be. These tests should be answered honestly in order to provide accurate insight and are a chance for you to reflect upon the current situation.
