When you suffer from mood swings, your emotional state may change rapidly and frequently. While mood swings can be caused by hormonal shifts, medications, and substance use, they may also be caused by mood disorders, like bipolar disorder.

Wherever you are located in California from Alameda to Yucaipa or even Montclair, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.
