Online Bipolar Test

This online bipolar test (Goldberg Bipolar Screening Test) can help determine whether you might have the symptoms of bipolar disorder (Bipolar I or II). Use the results to decide if you need to see a doctor or other mental health professional to further discuss diagnosis and treatment of adult bipolar disorder.

Instructions: This online bipolar test is designed to screen for the possibility of a disorder in the bipolar spectrum in individuals, 18 or older, who have had at least one depression severe enough to have caused them distress and/or interfered with their functioning at home, work, school or in their interpersonal relationships.
