Biopolar I Disorder

I should note that I found that the DSM-5 lumped all five axises into one big axis called "diognistic ctyteria." This made it incredably difficult to find and seperate the specifics for each axis. In the end I used the highschool textbook.





Biopolar I Disorder

Cycles of manic and depresion episodes. Thay do not have to ocur at regular intervals.

Axis 1 : Mood DisorderAxis 2 : Learning disabilities when in a manic or depressive episode.Axis 3 : An imbalance of serotonin in the brainAxis 4 : Bipolar is mostly a caused by a biological and not an enviermental problem. In this case the brain that regulates serotonin, witch can be helped by releving stress, but not cured .Axis 5 : Social relationships and occupational relationships will be stressed by this disorder especially when a person is having a manic or depressive episode. Leisure time will also be affected by having the person affected not doing a hobby they like.
