Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder (previously called manic-depression) is a biological brain disorder marked by extreme changes in mood, energy, thinking, and behavior.  Symptoms may be present since infancy or early childhood, or may suddenly emerge in adolescence or adulthood.  Children with Bipolar Disorder – whose symptoms manifest very differently than adults – can experience severe and rapid mood changes many times each day.

Because of the wide range of symptoms, Bipolar Disorder can be difficult to diagnose in young children, though early and proper treatment can minimize the adverse effects of the disorder on their lives.
