Explaining Bipolar Disorder

Explain and define a concept – Bipolar Disorder.  do not cite general encyclopedias (including Wikipedia).  You may use specialized encyclopedias (like The Encyclopedia of Psychology.)  Use sources to back up or explain your own ideas. Do not rely too heavily on one or two sources, simply regurgitating what they’ve told you. Rather, you must characterize your concept in an original way and use other people’s facts/opinions/examples to lend authority to your idea. In general, paraphrasing other people’s ideas is preferable to quoting too much. Remember, your thesis/focus should be your own.  DO NOT try to cover EVERYTHING about the disease:  symptoms, treatment, history, and every other possible bit of information, JUST focus on the main and most interesting aspects of this concept.
