What does a mixed state mean?

Is this when you hyper and depressed at the same time?

I was told this is a dangerous state to be in?

Is that correct?

Maybe someone can explain it plz.

Who told you it was a dangerous state to be in?

It’s the bad mania, where you’re incredibly amped up and irritable/angry. It’s seriously the worst emotional state I have ever been in.

It’s when you meet the criteria for both a manic or hypomanic episode and a depressive episode. It is associated with a much higher suicide risk.


It’s when you are hypomanic/manic and depressed at the same time.
I get these mixed state episodes frequently, especially when not on a mood stabilizer.

Yes I’ve had mixed episodes before too. Last time I had one i was dancing and wanting to wail at the same time. It’s the craziest state to be in. I tend to self harm the most in this state.
