What Should I Do If The Mania Or Depression Come Back In My Child?

Question: What should I do if the mania or depression come back in my bipolar child?

Answer: Well the most important thing to do is certainly have loved ones who are involved with the youngster's well-being, keeping a good eye on them. It also involves keeping a good relationship with other people who interact with this youngster, a teacher, a parent, a clergy, a babysitter and they should all be able to inform the parent if something is not quite the way they should be, at which point a good working relationship with a clinician and a physician or other mental health practitioner really need to come into play. And they should be notified of these concerns so that a effective intervention can be pursued promptly and vigorously.
