Children who suffer bipolar disorder have a tougher time being stabilised than adults and take longer to recover, according to recent research. Bipolar in children can be diagnosed through severe, acute changes in mood swings, insomnia, sexual promiscuity and delusions of grandeur, i.e. claiming that they are the king of the world. It is also difficult to diagnose bipolar in children, as their symptoms are often mistaken for behavioural problems such as ADHD. They can then be given incorrect medication that could make their condition worse.
