Does your Child or Adolescent have Bipolar Disorder? Bipolar I Disorder can be characterized by:
*Periods of feeling "high" and/or irritable and restless followed by
periods of feeling sad or depressed
*Unrealistic beliefs in one's abilities and powers
*Not needing to sleep very much
If your child is between the ages of 10-17 and is experiencing any of these symptoms, he/she may be eligible for a treatment research study at the Institute of Psychiatry.
Research study participants will receive study medication (or placebo) and monitoring by a psychiatrist at no cost. All information is strictly confidential. Compensation is available for time and travel. For more information contact Natalie Johnson at 876-5070.
