  • Professional Psych Seminars Helps You Understand Bipolar Disease

    Bipolar disorder is a somewhat common mental illness in the United States. Nearly three percent of all adolescents have bipolar disorder, and this is probably an underestimate as there may be many undiagnosed cases. The percentage is slightly lower for adults, but again, many cases go unreported. Even if you're new in the mental health field, you are likely to encounter patients with bipolar disorder, many of which can be significantly disabled by it. To deal with the challenges that this disorder presents, you need to be armed with knowledge. Professional Psych Seminars offers you online education that's taught by the experts in the field.
