Bipolar disorder symptoms (also referred to as manic depression) can be difficult to spot in kids and teenagers. Dr. Domenick Sportelli is a world renowned psychiatrist and knows the signs of bipolar disorder better than the average psychologist.
Bipolar disorder in children is often misdiagnosed as ADHD, depression, anxiety, and more. (And in adulthood, it is often mistaken for borderline personality disorder or vice versa.) But bipolar disorder can also be over-diagnosed in children. So this mental health education is more important than ever!
After watching this video, you’ll better understand bipolar disorder symptoms like manic episodes, hypomania, bipolar depression, mood swings, and more.
