It is estimated that about 350 million people worldwide suffer from bipolar disorder and that two-thirds of all people with bipolar are misdiagnosed. Michael Pipich believes that's a big reason why bipolar may account for about one-fourth of all suicides. In his new book, he breaks down bipolar disorder into understandable parts so patients and families know what to expect from diagnosis, treatment and long term management. In addition to performing clinical field trials for the 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), Pipich has testified as an expert in many legal cases and has taught graduate-level courses in psychopharmacology, addictions and counseling.
