Bipolar Disorder is a common and disabling psychiatric illness that is often misdiagnosed in patients presenting with depressive episodes. Physicians should consider this diagnosis in all patients that are showing signs of depressive symptoms since up to 20% of those with unipolar depression will go on to develop a bipolar disorder. This disorder is even present in many well-known celebrities such as Catherine Zeta-Jones who has publicly spoken out about having the illness in order to encourage others to seek medical help.
