Bipolar is a mental illness that causes a dramatic shift in a person’s mood.

Genetic factors contribute to bipolar disorder, and if there are family members suffering from emotional illness such as depression or bipolar, they tend to have the similar issue.

Psychology and environmental influences are some of the factors that trigger the disease.

Theoretically, this emotional disorder is caused by imbalance of chemicals (neurotransmitter) in the brain which are known as serotonin and dopamine.

Various issues like family problem, loss of job or being unemployed, financial issue, misunderstanding in workplace and also drug abuse are among the causes.
