Depression and Bipolar Disorder

Behavioral Health Solutions offers evaluations for depression and bipolar disorder in Tallahassee, FL. You may or may not recognize depression – less interest or pleasure in things, difficulties with self esteem, lack of sleep or oversleeping, fatigue, feeling empty, chronic sadness, or ongoing grief that doesn’t diminish in intensity. Depression can be caused by many things, including genetics, trauma, specific situations (situational depression), or health problems. Depression can greatly diminish pleasure in life, so getting evaluated and receiving treatment recommendations can help to alleviate these symptoms so you can enjoy life more.

Bipolar disorder can cause mood swings of depression, irritability, and euphoria, and vary in intensity. If severe, these moods may greatly interfere with functioning, cause loss of employment, family dysfunction, and may require hospitalization for stabilization. As with depression, bipolar disorder can be the result of trauma, family genetics, or significant health problems which have not been discovered. Children with ongoing, intermittent periods of severe irritability which appears disproportionate to the situation, and/or prolonged, uncontrollable temper tantrums over limitations, supervision, etc., may be exhibiting early signs of bipolar disorder. Early evaluation and treatment of bipolar disorder can contribute to higher functioning, safety, satisfaction, and achievement in life.
