Thoughts From A Jackson Area Psychologist
My posting today is a deviation from my own writing. I recently read an article on Bipolar Disorder and the mis-diagnosis of this serious condition in children. It reflects my own ideas, based on my experiences through the years. For those of you who have a child who has received this diagnosis, and may still be struggling with helping your child, I encourage you to read this. It is my opinion that this diagnosis for children and adults should be made only after a complete psychological or psychiatric evaluation--not on a one shot visit to someone who makes the determination and prescribes in a few minutes of meeting the individual.
