Mental Health Monday: Bipolar Depression 101

January 13, 2020

Ayo, we're back and ready to tackle 2020 with aplomb!

Come grab a fresh pair of Skull Candy earbuds and listen in for our first episode of the new year- one all about Bipolar Depression. Did you know that more people struggle with Bipolar Disorder in Australia than do cancer? Here in the United States, it is estimated that 1 in 50 individuals suffer with this mood disorder at any given time. And the effects of this disorder can be absolutely devastating to the sufferer's personal life and relationships if not managed. But, thankfully hope is absolutely possible and today, we'll break down what the disorder is, what it isn't, discuss treatment options, and even mention why you should never refer to it as "Manic Depression." Get ready to have your mind blown!
