Bipolar Disorder in Children and Teens Directory

Bipolar disorder can appear in teens and children as young as 6, but diagnosing bipolar in younger people is still controversial because symptoms can mimic other disorders or even normal child behavior. If your child or teen does have bipolar disorder, it is important to follow medication and lifestyle guidelines set by your doctor. Symptoms are similar to those of adults with bipolar disorder. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how bipolar disorder looks in children and teens, what the symptoms are, how to treat it, and much more.
