Some copied parts of the link:


1. During an episode of depression, you may have overwhelming feelings of worthlessness...


2. Treatments... control the effects of an episode and help someone with bipolar disorder live life as normally as possible.

3. lifestyle advice – such as doing regular exercise, planning activities you enjoy that give you a sense of achievement, as well as advice on improving your diet and getting more sleep


4. self-help and learning to deal with the practical aspects of a long-term condition.
