The primary way to evaluate someone for a diagnosis of bipolar disorder is through a specialist such as a psychiatrist or psychologist.
A self-questionnaire can give you a clue to possible illness but does not tell you if you have it. Diagnosing bipolar disorder is extremely difficult and should be left to specialists. A primary care physician may provide you with a referral.
