    Teens and Bipolar Disorder
    Annie_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Hi Everyone!

    If you have a teenager that is struggling with mental illness including depression and/or bipolar disorder, when did you realize that your teenager needed help?

    Do you struggle to get health care for your child?

    This article -- Teens and Bipolar Disorder -- may be helpful to you in looking for help. I'd also like to suggest that you take a look at our Crisis Assistance link which you will find in the left hand side navigation bar of every WebMD Community web page.

    Take care everyone!
