Our Approach To Bipolar Disorder in Children

What Sets Us Apart

Bipolar disorder is a chronic mental health condition that causes dramatic changes in a person’s mood and activity levels. Although it is sometimes thought of as an adult condition, bipolar disorder can also affect children and adolescents—making it difficult for them to participate in daily activities, such as attending school or interacting with peers.

The mental health specialists at NYU Langone’s Child Study Center recognize that accurate diagnosis and proper treatment are key to helping children and teens with bipolar disorder lead healthy, productive, and fulfilling lives.

Our specialists at NYU Langone Psychiatry Associates also treat adults with bipolar disorder.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Bipolar disorder responds well to treatment. Our team of mental health specialists at the Child Study Center works with you and your child to create a treatment plan that may include behavioral therapy, family therapy, medication, or a combination of these treatments.
