List of famous people with mood disorders including depression, biopolar disorder, and cyclothymia mania.
What are Mood Disorders?
A mood disorder is a condition whereby the prevailing emotional mood is distorted or inappropriate to the circumstances. The two major types of mood disorders are depression or unipolar depression and bipolar disorder.
Bipolar I Disorder - A mood disorder that is characterized by at least one Manic or Mixed episode. There may be episodes of Hypomania or Major Depression as well. It is a sub-diagnosis of bipolar disorder, and conforms to the classic concept of manic-depressive illness.
Bipolar II Disorder - A bipolar spectrum disorder that is characterized by at least one hypomanic episode and at least one major depressive episode. It is believed to be underdiagnosed because hypomanic behavior often presents as high-functioning.
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) - A personality disorder primarily characterized by emotional dysregulation, extreme "black and white" thinking, or "splitting", and chaotic relationships. The general profile of the disorder also typically includes a pervasive instability in mood, interpersonal relationships, self-image, identity, and behavior.
