    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    The DSM-V due in 2012! This article is pretty interesting, talks about some of the possible disorders that could be added or merged... a lot is on the line as always for a lot of us and our kids.
    Our psychiatrist1 Dr. Mani Pavuluri is on a team of researchers who are working on revising the DSM's section of Bipolar and adding Pediatric Bipolar. That would be so nice especially if it was accurate!

    Fascinating. I am so glad that so much research and recognition is finally being poured into the varying degrees of mental illness.
