Disability for Bipolar & Mania
Mania is an unusually elevated mood state, often associated with bipolar disorder. These mood swings are often uncontrollable, and are said to be ‘pendulum-like’. With the unpredictability of the mood swings, people with mania struggle to maintain personal relationships or a comfortable working environment.
Manic symptoms are very close to bipolar disorder signs, which include:
- Inappropriate elation
- Increased irritability
- Severe insomnia
- Grandiose notions
- Increased speed and/or volume of speech
- Disconnected and racing thoughts
- Markedly increased energy and activity level
- Poor judgment
- Inappropriate social behavior
Left untreated, manic depression and extreme mental stress can be severe side effects of mania or bipolar disorder. The overwhelming mental pressure can manifest to physical stresses like hurried speech, insomnia, hyper sexuality or obsessive behavior.
What Programs Are Out There?
The Canadian government provides people with mania or bipolar disability benefits designed to offset the financial and emotional burdens that come with the condition. Support for mania or bipolar disability can come in the form of the Canadian Disability Tax Credit (DTC) – created for families to maintain their standard of living.
However, almost half of the Canadians who qualify for the DTC or bipolar disability don’t submit a claim.
Most differently-abled Canadians find the Disability Tax Credit application process tedious, cumbersome, and complex. On top of their diagnosis, it’s simply too much work to be bothered with.
