suicidality, sociodemographics, childhood adversity and treatment of
rapid-cycling and non-rapid-cycling bipolar disorder in ten countries
(n = 54 257).
The 12-month prevalence of rapid-cycling bipolar disorder was 0.3%.
Roughly a third and two-fifths of participants with lifetime and 12-month
bipolar disorder respectively met criteria for rapid cycling. Compared
