New Course — We just added this course 19 days ago. Please let us know if you have any feedback about it.

About the Course:

Bipolar I disorder is a mental health disorder consisting of more than just two distinct poles. Specifically, between the extremes of mania and depression, individuals can also experience mixed states in which various manic and depressive symptoms are present simultaneously. Symptoms common between both depression and mania include anxiety, irritability, and agitation (AIA). This manuscript focuses on a post-hoc study examinng whether the presence of AIA symptoms are predictive of depression and/or prognosis.
