Stress's known to set bipolar disorder off, but there're other factors as well - those being chemical imbalances of the brain and a mix of physical, environmental and social triggers. Some of it's also genetic. A person who has parents who suffer from the disorder're probably going to follow suit.

Others develop the disorder through drinking and substance abuse. It's a nasty illness, but can be overcome with psychiatric help, exercise and medication.

That's right. It used to be called manic depression, and can be a very serious illness.
