We now have a new resource page on the blog for church staff, volunteers and parents looking for information about spiritual development and strategies for inclusion at church for kids with bipolar disorder.
Our page, Pediatric Bipolar Disorder: A Guide for Children’s Pastors, Youth Pastors and Volunteers, contains the content from a six-part blog series featured here in August 2010 on pediatric bipolar disorder, a link to a video of a Grand Rounds lecture I gave at Children’s Hospital Medical Center of Akron on the topic during the same month, and links to helpful information from the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), the National Institute of Mental Health, the Balanced Mind Foundation, and a Parents’ Medication Guide jointly developed by AACAP and the American Psychiatric Association.
Please feel free to share this resource with church leaders, parents and family members with interest in understanding more about helping kids and families affected by bipolar disorder.
