    Hi Mom,

    I understand your concern, you are in a tough spot right now and need a really, really good Child Psychiatrist on your team.

    Have you checked out CABF yet? They are an online support group for parents raising bipolar children. I joined over 3-years ago when my daughter was diagnosed. Here is the link:

    You need a good recommendation for a pdoc (short for psychiatrist). On bpkids (or CABF), there are links to Dr.s and places to get help/support.

    Please write back if you need have any additional concerns, or need more support!

    ((Hugs))
    -Kathleen
