Bipolar/Mood Disorders

We have psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors and therapists in Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill, Asheville, Wake Forest and the surrounding areas waiting and willing to assist you with a diagnosis and treatment of bipolar/mood disorder.

Bipolar disorder (also known as bipolar affective disorder, manic-depressive disorder, or manic depression) is a psychiatric diagnosis for a mood disorder. Individuals with bipolar disorder experience episodes of a frenzied state known as mania, typically alternating with episodes of depression. These two main features characterize people who live with bipolar disorder: intensity and oscillation (ups and downs).

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a serious mental illness that can be challenging for everyone involved, including the individuals with the illness, as well their friends and family members. BPD is characterized by impulsivity and instability in mood, self-image, and personal relationships. The treatments and longer-term studies of BPD offer hope for good outcomes for most individuals who live with BPD.
