Overview

A startling revelation about what ails many of our troubled children.

Bipolar not ADHD is intended to make everyone aware of how Bipolar Disorder, otherwise known as Manic Depressive Illness, especially in its atypical forms, is presently misunderstood and misdiagnosed as ADHD, Conduct Disorder, and other related behavioral disorders. It is also intended to make professionals and others who deal with troubled children become competent in identifying this serious and pervasive illness in children and adolescents and of being help to them.

A brief discussion of the etiology and treatment available for this illness and the social ramifications of this illness and its misdiagnosis in children is also included.

Bipolar not ADHD would be very valuable for psychiatrists, child psychiatrists, other professionals in the mental health fields, and students and professionals interested in child psychiatry and the mental health of children.
