The best way: Is to simply speak to your them about bipolar and why you are concerned about this diagnosis. Are you really 50 years old? They will be able to help you get a referral to a psychiatrist who can prescribe medication & a psychologist for psychotherapy, if they conclude that you have bipolar.
