3) Bipolar Disorder in Children and Adolescents

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.
