Health Risk Assessments

Could you have bipolar disorder?

Bipolar disorder, formerly called manic depression, can bring not only the "lows" of depression, but also "highs," or feelings of great euphoria. These episodes can lead to risky and sometimes dangerous behavior. To find out if you are at risk for bipolar disorder, take the following quiz from the National Institute of Mental Health.

Check each box that refers to how you've been feeling for two weeks or longer, then click "Submit" to learn your results. Please note that this assessment should not be used to make your own diagnosis but rather as a tool to help identify your risks. Only your doctor can provide a diagnosis.

Irritability

Decreased need for sleep
