About This Bipolar Test

This test is based on the Goldberg Bipolar Spectrum Screening test. It will only give an indication of whether you are showing some of the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder and cannot replace a full assessment nor should it be used to self-diagnose or decide upon a treatment plan. The test assumes that you have already had at least one episode of depression in your life.

Getting a full assessment, by a qualified clinician is therefore really important and if you are at all concerned about your symptoms or the results we would strongly recommend talking to your GP or calling one of the experts at Clinical Partners 0203 326 9160 who can arrange an assessment for you.

Diagnosing Bipolar can be very difficult because there are variations in the symptoms and variations of Bipolar Disorder.
