According to the DSM IV and many doctors, there is no such thing as juvenile bipolar disorder. I would seek a second opinion from another doctor so she can be evaluated.

I am an RN. If you will GOOGLE BiPolar in children, there are some very good articles there. Especially one called Warning Flafs for BiPolar children, if it was my daughter and she is that young, I would want a second opinion from a Pediatric Psychiatrist. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I have had BiPolar for several years, and was depressed as a child, but my Mom was Paranoid Schizophrenic and I did not receive the love and nuturing I needed, so that was one reason for my depression. I would like to invite you to be my friend, just so you know you aren't alone, Please write to me anytime you need to talk. Much love in JESUS, Carla.....the LORDSlady
