Disability and Overall Burden Related with Bipolar Disorder

  • Kostas N. Fountoulakis


The concept of disability is complex and has been revised several times in the past. It is defined as the consequence of an impairment which might be physical, cognitive, mental or sensory and could be either developmental or acquired. Combinations also occur. The consequences of any impairment could be loss of function or limitations in participation in various activities and in completing tasks.
