Talk with your doctor
Take this mood disorder questionnaire—and discuss it with your doctor
Recognizing bipolar disorder isn’t easy, especially in its depressive phase, which can mimic other kinds of depression. Some people may not remember a single instance of elevated mood; others may not see their “high” episodes as a problem. For your healthcare provider, though, such information is a clue that could affect your diagnosis and the way you’re treated.
This questionnaire can’t tell you if you have bipolar depression—or any other disorder. It can help you have a productive talk with your healthcare provider about all of your symptoms. (Caregivers can find a questionnaire just for them here.) Simply answer a few questions and share your responses at your next appointment. To receive your responses for that discussion, just follow the instructions below.
