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.
