Free Webinar Replay: How Bipolar Disorder Looks A Lot Like ADHD: Detection and Treatment of a Misunderstood Condition

Roberto Olivardia, Ph.D. explains how Bipolar Disorder differs from ADHD-related mood states.

Roughly 20 percent of people with ADHD also suffer from Bipolar Disorder, a serious mental illness characterized by depressive and manic episodes. Since both conditions share symptoms, but ADHD is more common, Bipolar Disorder is often missed or misdiagnosed. In fact, many patients don’t receive an accurate diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder until adulthood, though symptoms and difficulties commonly begin in childhood. In addition, patients with both ADHD and Bipolar Disorder are at higher risks for more severe symptoms of both conditions.
