I don't know if it is genetic but my father had it. I have it. That sounds strange to me.

100% GENETIC. It runs in the family. Period

There are many rumors that it runs through the family however, none have yet to be proven at the DNA level. To be perfectly honest, I am the only one who suffers the bi-polar class in my own family that I know of so I can attest to being that in that percentile that mental health issue came out of the blue. This doesn't mean it doesn't though.
ADHD, another common mental illness, runs through my children, through their father. So it is possible, it has just not been genetically proven.
