Q. My friend is imprisoned for a planned murder.

My friend is imprisoned for a planned murder. Family and friend assumes that he is bipolar, but as yet he is not been diagnosed. He has answered yes to all the questions in a questionnaire to indicate bipolar. Bipolar do commit murder often and would he have been manic when he did it?
A1It is not uncommon for someone suffering with bipolar to commit crimes, mostly this happens in a manic state. His family can talk to his lawyer about getting him a pychological evaluation, if he is dagnosed bipolar they can begin to treat him. He will still be responsible for his actions but they can work with him to make him better. Good luck
A2Thank you Rohan for your precious contribution.

A3This mania causes irritability, impulsivity, and mostly impaired judgement; it is not hard to understand how people in a manic state may commit criminal acts.
