Teens and Bipolar Disorder

http://psychcentral.com/lib/teens-and-bipolar-disorder/00051

Life must be truly confusing for a teenager or parents/guardians of a teenager to begin with. One minute, the child is full of life, happy, thrilled, the next, they are depressed, screaming and full of sadness and hurt.
However, teenagers with actual bipolar disorder have an even worse grouping of episodes of mania and depression, and must be dealt with differently than other teenagers.
Listed in this article is how to tell if a teenager has Bipolar Disorder, the possibility of a parent passing Bipolar Disorder onto their children, and more discussion on how to help a teen who has Bipolar Disorder.
