Description

Courant reporters looked into life of two children who suffer with an early-onset of bipolar disorder and what parents of these children have to undergo in their daily routines. Children who have been diagnosed often take a number of drugs which can create unpredictable side effects and are more likely to "abuse drugs or alcohol, have troubled relationships, and have difficulty holding jobs. A quarter, if untreated, commit suicide." Experts also believe that while it is hard to diagnose this disorder, there is a rise of bipolar cases in children and many cases are simply overlooked.
