Educating the appropiate professionals about diagnositic criteria for bipolar will ensure correct diagnoses are given and appropriate treatment is implemented and monitered. This disorder is thought to be misdiagnosed frequently. The new guidelines should assist in reducing the number of incorrectly diagnosed cases.

My son is currently in jail for drug use. this time it is for 1 mo. that is way too long for a bipolar person to be locked. When he gets out he is so manic the cicle startl over again. I wish these judges would have a different control for when this happens. I can see a week or two but a month and he isn't getting the correct meds. What can we do???
