Bipolar Disorder in Children and Adolescents

In this on-demand video series, Bipolar Disorder in Children and Adolescents, Soad Michelsen, MD, child and adolescent psychiatrist at Clarity CGC, reviews the difference between children with bipolar disorder and those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. This 7-part series provides information to assist mental health professionals with identification and effective treatment methods, as well as:

  • Clarifying how child psychiatrists determine the correct diagnosis for children.
  • Appropriate combinations of therapies and accommodations at home and school.
  • Judicious use of correct medications to alleviate the most problematic symptoms for the child.
