Review process: Literature of particular relevance to evidence-based practice was selected for critical review. Outcomes: An up-to-date overview of clinical features, epidemiology, prognosis, aetiology, assessment and intervention was provided. Conclusions: Bipolar disorder in children and adolescence is a relatively common, multifactorially determined and recurring roblem which persists into adulthood. Psychometrically robust screening questionnaires and structured interviews facilitate reliable assessment.
