And the percentage is even higher in the psychiatric setting. And incorrect treatment for bipolar disorder can actually lead to episodes of mania and other problems.

If a person is experiencing “hypomania”, how severe is their mania?

Hypomania can include symptoms such as having a change in mood that is abnormally energetic or irritable, feeling abnormally self-confident, needing less sleep, being more talkative or hyper, thinking faster than usual, having trouble concentrating, have more goal-directive or productive work, or engaging in more pleasurable activities than normal.
