What Is Bipolar Disorder? | Child Psychology


Bipolar disorder in children and teenagers
is very complex to diagnose. What we do know is that it’s a neurochemical
disorder that creates a combination of different symptoms that range from manic behaviors to
depressive behaviors. Other times, it’s a very unique combination
of manic and depressive symptoms. When we think about the manic symptoms, sometimes,
there is silliness and excessive laughter and giddiness. There’s grandiosity. There are times and occasions where a child
may have an idea in his or her head, and they absolutely have to conduct this task. They may stay up all night and not sleep. When we thing about depressive symptoms, we
think about the common irritability, grouchiness, difficulty sleeping. Again, these combination of manic and depressive
symptoms can cycle highs and lows very rapidly or be very slow to observe. The diagnosis of bipolar disorder must be
conducted by a clinical professional, because, again, it’s very complex. While it’s a very complicated disorder, these
are some of the basic factors in understanding childhood bipolar disorder.

  1. You're right. If you live in Jamaica you would understand. We beat them for any sickness..If you have autism they beat it out of you and you are cured. If you cant walk they beat you and you walk. In America they put you in a wheelchair and do everything for you. This is why very few Jamaicans have any illness of the mind.
