About the Series

It’s clear that bipolar disorder is wildly misunderstood - and its many misconceptions are perpetuated by behaviors and symptoms that are exaggerated through television and movies. The first step in de-stigmatizing bipolar disorder is through credentialed education. Dr. Domenick Sportelli (Dr. Dom) brings just that in this series.

As a Double Board Certified psychiatrist, Dr. Dom understands how to spot the signs in teenagers and adults. He also walks you through how to navigate the complex diagnosis & treatment process, how to handle an extreme manic or depressive episode, and how to manage mental wellness when substance abuse (which commonly co-occurs with bipolar disorder) is part of the problem.

“Bipolar runs in my family - two of my cousins and my dad are diagnosed. I was really struggling to understand what they were going through and what to do for them when they are depressed. I wanted to thank both MedCircle and Dr. Dom for making this series because now, I finally get it. I understand and I know what to do.”
