Illustration of girl on swing.In recognition of World Bipolar Day, NIMH is hosting a livestream event on bipolar disorder in adolescents and young adults. Bipolar disorder is not the same as the typical ups and downs every kid goes through. Bipolar disorder can be particularly difficult to diagnose in adolescents as they are already experiencing mood swings related to puberty and hormonal changes.

During the event, clinical psychologist and chief of the Child and Adolescent Psychosocial Interventions Research Program at NIMH, Mary Rooney, Ph.D., will discuss the signs and symptoms, proper diagnosis, and treatments for bipolar disorder in adolescents and young adults. Also, Dr. Rooney will discuss some of the challenges that the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has presented for individuals living with bipolar disorder and other mental illnesses.

Watch the livestream event on NIMH’s Facebook or Twitter feeds.
