Does Your Daughter Suffer From Bipolar Disorder? Clearview Girls Academy Can Help
Clearview Girls Academy can treat your daughter as she struggles with Bipolar Disorder. Bipolar Disorder is a condition characterized by periods of unusually high mood and energy alternating with periods of abnormally depleted mood and energy level. Her frame of mind swings back and forth between feelings of elation and despair, tending towards the extremes when compared to the normal “ups and downs” which virtually everybody experiences in life.
While she may experience normal phases in between, the high phase (clinically referred to as “manic”), might find her easily agitated, with racing thoughts, inappropriately high self-esteem, too much talking and too little need for sleep, poor judgment and temper control, little self control and engaging in reckless behavior (i.e.: sexual activity, binge drinking/eating/drug use).
Her “depressive” (clinically low) episodes might be marked with anxiety, guilt, remoteness, anger, sadness, low energy, excessive/disturbed sleep, loss of interest in activities or friends that she once enjoyed, suicidal thoughts or actions.
Family history and brain chemistry are considered factors, but causes for BPD are not clearly known. Other recognized factors include: a blood relative with BPD, drug or alcohol abuse, an excessive amount of a high stress or traumatic situation.
Clearview Offers an Ideal Remote Setting to Help Your Daughter with Bipolar Disorder
It is critical for your daughter to receive a correct diagnosis, particularly because of the self-threatening nature of many of the behaviors associated with Bipolar Disorder; in some cases, commitment (either voluntary or involuntary) will be called for, in order to allow treatment to proceed. The (attempted) suicide rate for girls with BPD is ten times the general population, and so early treatment is crucial (i.e.: not confusing her symptoms with chronic depression).
There are indeed medications that can help your daughter control her BPD symptoms, which should be taken along with therapy from a qualified individual. It can be misleading to think that symptoms have disappeared, causing one to think that her problems may have disappeared and she’s been cured; but we know that he last thing you’d want is for Bipolar Disorder to control her life again, and both are absolutely required for a lifetime!
