Virtual Forum: Addressing Diagnostic Complexities Of Bipolar Disorder (Distinguishing Bipolar Series Part 2)
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: In the upcoming second part of a series on distinguishing bipolar disorder, Rif El-Mallakh, MD, and Mark Zimmerman, MD, will build upon the science discussed during Part 1 of the series and provide insight into the diagnostic complexity of bipolar disorder. The correct diagnosis of bipolar disorder may be delayed for years, with a main confounding factor being the broad range of co-morbidities that can be present with bipolar disorder. These co-morbid disorders may include anxiety, post traumatic stress, substance use, and personality disorders, as well as major depressive disorder (MDD).
In Part 1 of this series, Dr. Mauricio Tohen and Dr. Madhukar Trivedi provided an overview of MDD and bipolar disorders and highlighted their individual and overlapping symptoms. If you missed Part 1 of the distinguishing bipolar disorder series, you can review the archived presentation on PsychU.org at https://www.psychu.org/mdd-bipolar-disorder/.
