Bipolar Disorder in Children

Symptoms of bipolar disorder in children are listed and discussed on many web pages dedicated to diagnosis, treatment and support of those who have what is also known as early-onset or juvenile-onset manic-depression. Articles by professionals on common misdiagnosis of bipolar disorder in children, as well as discussions of other issues, accommodations, and treatments, are available. There is even a sample IEP for help in educational settings.

If your loved one is showing symptoms of bipolar disorder, finding information, resources and support online and in your community can make a big difference in your family's life and your child's future. You are not alone.
