What are mood disorders??

Marked by extreme changes in moods, depression and bipolar disorder (also called manic-depressive disorder) are highly treatable medical illnesses.  Depression​ is changes in mood, behavior, and thoughts that lasts at least 2 weeks and significantly impacts everyday life.  Bipolar Disorder ​is extreme changes in mood, thoughts, energy and behavior that swing between the highs of mania and the lows of depression​.  These mood changes can last for days, weeks, or months.  ​Both mood disorders can be treated and managed.
