#6489. Different from the routine ups and downs of life, the symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe – even to the point of being life-threatening. In this insightful program, patients speak from their own experience about the complexities of diagnosis and the very real danger of suicide, while family members and close friends address the strain of the condition’s cyclic behavior.
In addition, Robert Hirschfeld, of The University of Texas Medical Branch; Karen Wagner, director of UTMB’s Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry; and Joseph Calabrese, director of the Mood Disorders Research Program at University Hospitals of Cleveland, present new treatment options and medications for controlling bipolar disorder.
