This is a 9 page paper discussing the symptoms, diagnosis, treatments and legal, ethical and cultural considerations in the treatment of bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, currently affects over 2 million people in the United States. The disorder consists of a combination of mania, hypomania, and depression. The current edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) provides a good outline for clinicians and psychiatrists to diagnose the disorder and recommendations for treatment of symptoms for patients with bipolar disorder. However, further research in the area of mental illness also stresses the need for therapists and clinicians during the treatment of the disorder to take into consideration the stresses of the family members, medical ethical and legal issues in the treatment of mental illness, as well as race, age, gender, socio-economic and cultural issues which may also play a large role in the treatment of a patient with bipolar disorder and the general mental health of the society.
