Bipolar Disorder is a brain disorder that causes shifts in mood and energy levels. It can hinder one’s ability to carry out daily tasks. Commonly referred to as manic-depressive illness, Bipolar disorder is a mental illness and a lifelong battle. Often considered an invisible illness, which can make it easier for insurance companies to deny claims, we understand how frustrating this can be for those with the illness.
At Share Lawyers, we’ve represented clients diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and helped them to obtain the long-term disability benefits they deserve. Below, we’ve gathered a selection of blog posts about Bipolar Disorder, to give you a glimpse into the experiences of those affected by the illness.
In this blog post we talk about Catherine Zeta Jones’ battle with Bipolar Disorder II and the factors that contribute to the illness. Often attributed to genetic or circumstantial high-stress situations, there is no known cure for Bipolar Disorder II but it can be treated in combination with therapy and medication. Zeta Jones’ experience with the illness is a very powerful account because it shows that not only is mental illness a lifelong battle, but that it can occur in anyone. Learn More.
In this blog post we discuss some of the misconceptions about mental illnesses, like Bipolar Disorder. We talk about how insurance companies look for ways to deny claims made by people with mental illnesses – an extremely discouraging experience to endure. In many of these accounts, with the help of a disability lawyer, action can be taken to provide disability insurance benefits. Learn More.
In this blog post we share how important it is to talk to a doctor and seek help for depression and other conditions that involve depression, such as Bipolar Disorder.

A note from our long term disability lawyers
Taking a medical leave from work is not an easy decision to make. Concerns about providing for yourself and your family and keeping your job may cause you to want to push through your pain, but this won’t make your problems go away. Stopping work is often the smartest decision for your long term health and well-being, and your disability benefits are there to provide you with financial support until you can return to work.
If you have made the tough decision to stop working and apply for your short term disability or long term disability benefits, you may feel overwhelmed by the process and have questions that your employer and your insurance company are not able or willing to answer. Share is There to see you through and answer your questions.
Our Disability law firm knows what you have been going through
We understand that things have not been easy for you over the last little while. Your health has been suffering, you are unable to work, and now your insurance company, who was supposed to be there in your time of need, has decided they will not pay your disability benefits or respect your disability claim. These benefits exist to provide you with the financial support you need so that you can focus on your health and rebuilding your life. It is unfortunate that your insurance company has not lived up to its promise. If your disability claim has been denied, we will fight to get you the benefits you are entitled to. Our disability lawyers have helped thousands of Canadians get their long term disability benefits over the past 35 years, and we can help you too.
