Some cases can be influenced by genetics alone, some by life events alone ie loosing someone you love/ something stressful or tragic
It depends on the person and sometimes it’s a combination idk hope this helps

I was actually just diagnosed with this condition today funnily enough and tbh, there’s a number of factors to it, for instance I have no history of severe depression or even the disorder itself in my family but we do have a significant history of epilepsy so there could be a future link there. There’s also a chance of severe stress triggering an episode, I.e our environmental factors, as-well as significant trauma in childhood, although to be honest Bipolar tends to run genetically.
