Back to school with bipolar? How college can unleash mania
by Michele Hoos

The rituals of college -- making new friends, studying until dawn, excessive partying -- can stress out any young adult. But students with bipolar disorder, or those at risk for the condition, are even more vulnerable in a college environment.

Academic pressures, social concerns, and sleep disruptions can lead to bouts of depression as well as mania, the euphoric, revved-up state characteristic of bipolar disorder.

Without the right treatment and support, bipolar college students face higher dropout rates, drug and alcohol abuse, and even suicide.
