The purpose of this presentation is to provide information and resources to support the success of students with Bipolar Disorder. Students with Bipolar Disorder are at-risk for negative school outcomes, so school psychologists should be prepared to offer students supports. Participants who attend the presentation will gain a deeper understanding of Bipolar Disorder; they will learn how to identify symptoms, causes, outcomes, and treatments. Additionally, participants will learn how to support students with Bipolar Disorder through a Multi-Tiered System of Supports Model. Some supports that will be discussed include providing mental health awareness, referring students to local agencies, and psychoeducation.
