People with documented histories of being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, formerly known as manic depression, whether their bipolar condition is Type I, Type II, cyclothymia or of unstated type even though officially diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
In the case of persons who lived in a time before the diagnostic criteria for bipolar disorder were defined (e.g. Vincent Van Gogh), this category applies if there are verifiable and credible sources that speculate the person was bipolar.
NOTE: People with manic-seeming public personas (i.e. Charlie Sheen, Britney Spears, Jim Carrey, Robin Williams) but without documented diagnostic histories of bipolar disorder do not belong in this category. Also, persons prior to the 20th century may have incomplete or speculative diagnoses of bipolar disorder (e.g. Vincent van Gogh.)
