Our Approach to Bipolar Disorder

The Bipolar Child by Dmitri Papolos, M.D. and Janice Papolos

Bipolar disorder is a brain disorder that

causes people to experience extreme and

rapid changes in mood and energy.  These

shifts often result in disruptive, or even

destructive, behavior that make it difficult

for children to perform at school or have

normal relationships with others.


Estimates suggest that up to 1% of young

people experience Bipolar Disorder;

between 20%-30% of adolescents who

have an initial episode of depression eventually develop Bipolar Disorder. Psychotherapy is helpful in teaching children how to cope with their mood changes.  Often, family therapy is also necessary to help with the effects of the child's behavior on the home.​
