Hypomania is a rare condition. People who have hypomania feel a lot of energy, do not need to sleep very much and experience elevated moods. While the symptoms of the disorder may not sound bad at all, people with the condition often suffer negative consequences related to their lack of sleep such as depression, physical illness and suffering relationships and work life.
People with the disorder often abuse substances to attempt to manage their disorder, which can make diagnosis and treatment even more complicated. If you or a loved one have hypomania, you are not alone. Treatment is available.
Assessing Your Risk of Hypomania
Do you think you or your loved one could have hypomania? You can take a self-assessment to begin to get some answers. A quiz is not an official diagnosis as only a medical professional can accurately diagnose a mental health condition. An assessment can evaluate individual and collective symptoms to help you decide if you should seek treatment.
