How do you get tested for bipolar disorder? Where do you go or how do you start the process?
None

There are no definitive tests like blood tests or anything. You would see a psychiatrist or psychologist and over time with your symptoms they can diagnose u. Many people are not truly bipolar but have a different condition such as borderline personality. It is imperative to get with a good dr who is well versed in disorders. It is very hard to find a good one in owensboro. Evansville has some good ones- call deaconess. If its a juvenile, the best place I know for dx is in Cincinnati

A personality disorder is very different than just a mood disorder. I recommend Louisville or Evansville.

The dx could vary based on how each dr reads the results. We just went thru the testing with my daughter in Cincinnati (as someone else posted). The drs there felt she was bipolar after doing all the interviews and such. They said another dr may read it differently but they were going to treat her as such
