NICE Bipolar (CG 185)
Bipolar disorder is a potentially lifelong and disabling condition characterised by episodes of mania or hypomania and episodes of depressed mood.
This guideline covers the recognition, assessment and management of bipolar disorder with specific recommendations for diagnosis in children and young people as it can be confused with ADHD in these age groups. The recommendations apply to people with bipolar I, bipolar II, mixed affective and rapid cycling disorders.
This guideline does not make specific recommendations about other mental disorders that commonly coexist with bipolar disorder.
