What is Bipolar Illness?
Table Of Contents The bipolar disorders are mood disorders. That means that amongst other things, there is a major change in mood. In bipolar disorders, this change in mood can be down, as in depression, or the opposite, mania. That is, a person can be inappropriately up. Some types of bipolar disorder have a lot of depression and only a little mania. Others have half and half. Still others seem to be both manic and depressed at the same time. Some people with bipolar disorders only have a few cycles of depression and mania. Others have many cycles a year. When bipolar illness is present in children and adolescents, it is more severe and harder to treat than when it occurs in adults. Pediatric Bipolar illness is one of the most severe conditions in pediatrics. In the milder forms, it can be disabling. In the severe forms, it can be lethal. The prognosis cancers in pediatrics is better than many forms of bipolar illness. All bipolar disorders are a combination of mania with or without depression. So what is mania? Here are the official criteria:

It has only been recently (in the past 15 years or so) that professionals in the Psychiatric Field have even begun considering that BiPolar Disorder (a.k.a. Manic -Depression) may in fact have onset prior to puberty. I believe it was a surprise even to them how many children were being affected by BP. OUR STORY Jeremy was always a somber child. He would laugh and play like any normal child, but there were times when NOTHING would make him smile. Beginning at the age of 3, he really began having problems. He was "disenrolled" from 3 daycares for violence. In Kindergarten, he was way ahead of his class academically, but his teacher wanted to retain him for "immaturity". I refused to allow it. She told me that he would never succeed. He was always in trouble. I knew something was wrong, but everybody wanted to fix ME instead of believeing anything could be internally wrong with my baby. We moved back near my family when he was 6. The new school was smaller and the families more involved than what we had experienced before. I hoped that the changes would help. Within the first two weeks, the teacher asked me if he had ever been screened for ADHD. The answer was "no". I took him to a doctor who specialized in ADHD. It was his determination that Jeremy did have ADHD and we began treatment with Ritalin. When that didn't work well and Jeremy developed tics, the doctor moved on to alternative treatments. Catapres made him like a zombie and he crashed at each dosage increase. Imipramine seemd to help the most, but then it began to backfire on him.

Bipolar Disorder and Children
Many children and especially adolescents experience mood swings as a normal part of growing up, but when these feelings persist and begin to interfere with a child’s ability to function in daily life, bipolar disorder could be the cause.  Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depression, is a type of mood disorder marked by extreme changes in mood, energy levels and behavior.  Symptoms can begin in early childhood but more typically emerge in adolescence or adulthood.  Until recently, young people were rarely diagnosed with this disorder.  Yet up to one-third of the 3.4 million children and adolescents with depression in the United States may actually be experiencing the early onset of bipolar disorder according to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.  Doctors now recognize and treat the disorder in both children and adolescents, but it is still an under-recognized illness.
Children with bipolar disorder usually alternate rapidly between extremely high moods (mania) and low moods (depression).  These rapid mood shifts can produce irritability with periods of wellness between episodes, or the young person may feel both extremes at the same time.  Parents who have children with the disorder often describe them as unpredictable, alternating between aggressive or silly and withdrawn.  Children with bipolar disorder are at a greater risk for anxiety disorders and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).  These "co-occurring" disorders complicate diagnosis of bipolar disorder and contribute to the lack of recognition of the illness in children.

This trend is beginning to change for the better, and resources are becoming available to help parents and kids cope with early-onset bipolar disorder. These links should you get started.

Bipolar Disorder - Children and Adolescents
What is Bipolar Disorder or Manic-Depression?
Bipolar Disorder is a serious mental illness that affects a child's or adolescent’s mood and behavior. Young people with Bipolar Disorder have dramatic changes in their moods, alternating between feeling very depressed and feeling high or manic. They may have more normal moods between these episodes. The periods of depression or mania can last for days, weeks or even months. Because of the depression and mania, Bipolar Disorder is also called Manic-Depression. At this site, we will use the term Bipolar. In other places, you may see the term Manic-Depression used.

B IPOLAR D ISORDER (MANIC-DEPRESSIVE ILLNESS) IN T EENS No. 38 Updated 5/2000 Teenagers with Bipolar Disorder may have an ongoing combination of extremely high (manic) and low (depressed) moods. Highs may alternate with lows, or the person may feel both extremes at the same time. Bipolar Disorder usually starts in adult life.

The manic symptoms include
  • severe changes in mood compared to others of the same age and background - either unusually happy or silly, or very irritable, angry, agitated or aggressive
  • unrealistic highs in self-esteem - for example, a teenager who feels all powerful or like a superhero with special powers
  • great increase in energy and the ability to go with little or no sleep for days without feeling tired

Children with bipolar conduct disorder
Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depression, is a disorder of the brain marked by extreme mood swings, rise or fall in activity levels, and erratic behavioral changes. Most children with this disorder will go from a nearly euphoric high mood (manic) to a deeply depressed pessimistic and sometimes even suicidal mood (Depressive). Children have a rougher time dealing with this disorder because they don't understand why they feel the way they do. Sometimes before they are diagnosed, the child may be labeled in school as a troublemaker or the child is so withdrawn that they have lost interest in school activities, and have failed to make friends. With Bipolar disorder, understanding what the child is going through is the most important key to treatment. Bipolar is a serious condition, and although there is no cure, it's treatable with medication. bodyOffer(28305) Symptoms can start showing up as early as infancy. Bipolar disorder is different in children than it is in adults. Children usually have continuous mood swings that will go back and forth from mania to depression. These quickly changing moods produce chronic irritability. There may be times where the child will seem normal and display no mood swings or any other symptoms of Bipolar at all, only to have the symptoms come back at another time.

About Juvenile-Onset
Bipolar Disorder Bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness) affects more than 1 million children and adolescents in the United States at any given time. Abrupt swings of mood and energy that occur multiple times within a day, intense outbursts of temper, poor frustration tolerance, and oppositional defiant behaviors are commonplace in juvenile-onset bipolar disorder. These children veer from irritable, easily annoyed, angry mood states to silly, goofy, giddy elation, and then just as easily descend into low energy periods of intense boredom, depression and social withdrawal, fraught with self-recriminations and suicidal thoughts. Recent studies have found that from the time of initial manifestation of symptoms, it takes an average of ten years before a diagnosis is made. Bipolar disordermanic-depressionwas once thought to be rare in children. Now researchers are discovering that not only can bipolar disorder begin very early in life, it is much more common than ever imagined.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Early-Onset Bipolar Disorder What Is early-onset bipolar disorder and why are we suddenly hearing so much about it? Early-onset bipolar disorder is manic-depression that appears earlyvery earlyin life. For many years it was assumed that children could not suffer the mood swings of mania or depression, but researchers are now reporting that bipolar disorder (or early temperamental features of it) can occur in very young children, and that it is much more common that previously thought. Is bipolar disorder in children the same thing as bipolar disorder in adults? Adults seem to experience abnormally intense moods for weeks or months at a time, but children appear to experience such rapid shifts of mood that they commonly cycle many times within the day. This cycling pattern is called ultra-ultra rapid or ultradian cycling and it is most often associated with low arousal states in the mornings (these children find it almost impossible to get up in the morning) followed by afternoons and evenings of increased energy. It is not uncommon for the first episode of early-onset disorder to be a depressive one. But as clinical investigators have followed the course of the disorder in children, they have reported a significant rate of transition from depression into bipolar mood states.

Article by John F. Alston, MD.Category Health Mental Health Attachment disorder...... While there are some characteristics in common between ADD and bipolar disorderin children, hopefully an experienced clinician can differentiate between the
Correlation Between Bipolar Disorder and Reactive Attachment Disorder By John F. Alston, M.D. Historically, mental health professionals have long associated Attention Deficit Disorder with Reactive Attachment Disorder. It is true that children who have been abused and/or neglected do have attentional problems secondary to their abusive circumstances or brain maturational problems. Experts have put this correlation of ADD and RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder) at between 40% and 70% for either abused/neglected children and/or adopted children. In my experience as psychiatric consultant to the Attachment Center at Evergreen since 1977, as well as within my own private practice and consultations with other attachment programs and adoption agencies in which I supervise psychotherapists who work with attachment disorders, I have come to realize that Attention Deficit Disorder is vastly overdiagnosed in this clinical population, leading to inadequate, even contraindicated treatment. I have concluded that correlations between Bipolar Disorder and Reactive Attachment Disorder are indeed much more common. This conclusion has led to different, and in my experience, much more effective medical treatment plans for these children. I have reached the above conclusion gradually over the last several years. In the past twenty five years, since my graduation from medical school, I have diagnosed and treated approximately 3,500 cases of ADD and approximately 1,000 cases of Bipolar Disorder. Particularly in my role as a consultant to The Attachment Center at Evergreen program, it has been my professional privilege and pleasure to assess and treat children from all over the United States and at least a few foreign countries. In my experience, this miscorrelation between ADD and Reactive Attachment Disorder is international.
