Bipolar Disorder in Children and Teens (cont.)

How can I help my child or teen?

Help begins with the right diagnosis and treatment. If you think your child may have bipolar disorder, make an appointment with your family doctor to talk about the symptoms you notice.

If your child has bipolar disorder, here are some basic things you can do:

  • Be patient.
  • Encourage your child to talk, and listen to your child carefully.
  • Be understanding about mood episodes.
  • Help your child have fun.
  • Help your child understand that treatment can make life better.
