mania - characterized by a persistently elevated, expansive, or irritable mood. Related symptoms may include inflated self-esteem, increased goal-directed activity or energy, including grandiosity, decreased need for sleep, excessive talkativeness, racing thoughts, flight of ideas (FOI), distractibility, psychomotor agitation, and a propensity to be involved in high-risk activities. Mania leads to significant functional impairment and may include psychotic features or necessitate hospitalization

Bipolar Type I: - requires at least one episode of mania for at least one week (or any duration if hospitalization due to symptoms is required)

Bipolar Type II: - diagnosis requires a current or past hypomanic episode and a current or past major depressive episode. Symptoms last for at least 4 days but fewer than seven.
-Hypomanic symptoms are not of sufficient duration or severity to cause significant functional impairment, psychosis, or hospitalization.
-Anger and irritability are common.
-Clients often enjoy the elevation of mood and are reluctant to report these symptoms, making bipolar more difficult to diagnose if the client presents in the depression phase.

Cyclothymia: - involves the chronic presentation of hypomanic and depressive symptoms that do not meet the diagnostic criteria for a major depressive or manic/hypomanic episode.
