Bipolar patients are able to work if they receive support

A Canadian study explains that 69% of bipolar disorder patients in Canada are able to work and the crucial element is the level of support they have in coping with day to day activities when needed. Approximately 3% of Canadians have had a manic episode at least once in their lives. Bipolar is associated with manic periods often followed by depression. Bipolar is commonly evident around the age of 19. Bipolar sufferers are also more prone to mental and emotional problems, asthma, migraines and obesity.
