Suicide is an important and serious health issue. It can be used as an indicator of mental health in the population.

Many cases of bipolar disorder are misdiagnosed as clinical depression because patients tend to seek treatment during the down phases, rather than the euphoric manic phases. Other possible misdiagnoses include anxiety disorders, borderline personality disorder, and schizophrenia. There are several subtypes of bipolar disorder, including the milder bipolar II disorder, that need to be carefully distinguished for accurate diagnosis. There is a tendency to romanticize bipolar disorder. Many artists, musicians and writers have suffered from its mood swings.
