List of famous people with Bipolar disorder.

When the popular singer, songwriter, and actress Demi Lovato came out publically with the fact that she was suffering from bipolar disorder, there was a public outpouring of support and good wishes for her. Living with bipolar disorder is not easy—as this Disney star and other celebrities suffering from the condition would attest. But the resounding success enjoyed by celebrities diagnosed with the disorder proves that it need not be the end of normalcy in a person’s life. While the term Bipolar Disorder may have been recently coined, the condition is not a new one by any means. Ernest Hemingway, the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize in Literature, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in his later years. The glamorous actress of yesteryears, Vivien Leigh, was also someone who suffered from this disorder, previously known as "manic depression." Living and working with the condition is very challenging, as it causes unusual shifts in mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs. It is chronic in nature and can cause risky behavior, even suicidal tendencies. But with proper treatment, patients can not only lead a normal life but can also excel in their fields. This section provides you information about the life and works of famous people with bipolar disorder.
