Psychiatrist from South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG), Dr. Antoinette Miric, says substance abuse and the environment may trigger Bipolar Disorder.
Miric points out that, “Bipolar is not only inherited but may be triggered by a number of factors. At SADAG we believe at least 24 percent of the South African population is affected by Bipolar although only one percent has been diagnosed.”
She adds that people who are affected with Bipolar Disorder can live a perfectly normal life with the proper treatment.
