Bipolar Test



Try this free screening for Bipolar Disorder

This free online Bipolar Test is only a preliminary screening, and even a positive outcome suggesting Bipolar Disorder does not warrant a conclusive diagnosis. A proper diagnosis can only be accurately made by a mental health professional. It is recommended that you print this page, and share the results of this bipolar test with your doctor, psychiatrist or therapist.

Take the Bipolar Test (Screening for History of Mania)

I. Has there ever been a period of time when you were not your usual self and...

1. ...you felt so good or so hyper that other people thought you were not your normal self or you were so hyper that you got into trouble?

Yes

No

2. ...you were so irritable that you shouted at people or started fights or arguments?

Yes

No

3. ...you felt much more self-confident than usual?

Yes

No

4. ...you got much less sleep than usual and found you didn't really miss it?

Yes

No

5. ...you were much more talkative or spoke much faster than usual?

Yes

No

6. ...thoughts raced through your head or you couldn't slow your mind down?

Yes

No

7. ...you were so easily distracted by things around you that you had trouble concentrating or staying on track?

Yes

No

8. ...you had much more energy than usual?

Yes

No

9. ...you were much more active or did many more things than usual?

Yes

No

10. ...you were much more social or outgoing than usual, for example, you telephoned friends in the middle of the night?

Yes

No

11. ...you were much more interested in sex than usual?

Yes

No

12. ...you did things that were unusual for you or that other people might have thought were excessive, foolish, or risky?

Yes

No

13. ...spending money got you or your family into trouble?

Yes

No

II. If you checked YES to more than one of the above, have several of these ever happened during the same period of time?

Yes

No

III. How much of a problem did any of these cause you - like being unable to work; having family, money or legal troubles; getting into arguments or fights?

No Problem

Minor Problem

Moderate Problem

Serious Problem

IV. Have any of your blood relatives had bipolar disorder ("manic-depression")?

Yes

No

V. Has a health professional ever told you that you have manic depressive illness or bipolar disorder?

Yes

No


If you answered "YES" to 7 or more items in section I, and....

if you answered "YES" to question II, and....

answered "moderate" or "serious" problems for question III

then this is considered a positive screen for Bipolar Disorder, and further evaluation by a mental health professional is strongly recommended. This free online Bipolar test is a commonly used initial assessment tool. Other causes of your symptoms will have to be ruled out before a diagnosis can be accurately made. Your therapist or psychiatrist may choose to use an additional bipolar test, and should conduct a full diagnostic interview. The bipolar test is also more accurate when close family or friends can offer accurate history and observations of your behavior.

"I went to your website and found your “guided meditation for depression”. The 15 minute one. I laid down... just exhausted from all the inner pain and the “trying” to make is stop... and "trying to fix it"... and I listened to your guided meditation for 15 minutes. The inner pain went away. I was kind of stunned!
(I meditate daily)…so I felt as if some kind of “inner demon” was tormenting me or something, and it was simply gone and I could breathe and felt I came back to myself. I felt like my self for the first time in days. The pain wasn’t just “shouting at me” nor was it simply “lurking in the background”... lurking to come back...it was gone."
