Manic depression and bipolar, many, adhering to only its name, consider it same or similar to each other, while others argue the opposite. Manic depression and bipolar are in fact the same but the preferred terminology used is bipolar and not manic depression. If they are same then why and how are there different terms?
Earlier the disorder was termed as ‘manic depression’ which characterized of severe mood swings between a manic state and a depressed state. This manic depression was again divided into three types: (1) Manic type, where manic episodes occurred exclusively, (2) Depressed type, where depressed episodes occurred exclusively and (3) mixed type, where both the episodes, manic and depression, occur at least once.
Later from 1960 onwards experts started discussing on a new term for this group of disorder and finally with the third edition of Diagnostic and statistical manual for mental disorders the disorder was officially named bipolar. But why did it changed?
These are group of disorders that is characterized by occurrence of more than one extreme emotional state. It is divided into different types. Before explaining the types, 3 significant mood episodes have to be understood.
Since now we know manic depression is bipolar disorder that is the term to be used. The use of correct term is important because it has been changed for a reason and after years of studies. One of these reasons is the stigma attached to the term “manic”. We need to be careful while use such delicate terms as it might affect the individual in way we might not know and ultimately affecting their treatment process.
