Combination therapy including medication and family-focused counselling has been shown to be of great benefit in treating adolescents with bipolar disorder. Bipolar is a condition that was previously known as Manic-Depressive disorder as it can present with symptoms of depression or mania at any one time. Teenage sufferers experience more extreme variations and expressions of emotions than children their age, which can make for difficult times in the family unit. Mood stabilizing drugs and family focused therapy has also had similar results in adult trials of bipolar disorder.
