How can you find out if a loved one is bipolar?

Take them to a psychologist. Go from there. That's the only way to really know for sure. The symptoms are being in one of two emotional states. Either manic or depressive. These states will switch though, whether by an environmental trigger, or by something emotionally triggered. When someone is manic, they feel like they can take on the world, are ecstatic, full of energy, but even though that might sound "ok" they are prone to irritability, anger, rage, not sleeping and hurting themselves or others when they are out of control. Depression on the other hand, is when they might be in bed all day, have no desire to do anything, even things they normally enjoy, tired all the time, isolating themselves, thoughts of suicide etc. but the thing with bipolar is that these moods switch, proper medication and therapy can help control these things, but the person has to be willing to try. good luck.
