This is a good list of indicators. One thing I was looking for in particular was a manic symptom - denial of anything being wrong. Although this might be a subset of inflated self-esteem or grandiosity? I found a reference to this (ref: I ask because I'm a parent of a teenager who has got to be the poster-child for most of the manic episode symptoms shown here, and very likely going to seek some form of bipolar treatment for her... so thanks for the information here.


Hi Laney,

I think denial of anything being wrong is fairly common with many serious mental health disorders. Who wants to be mentally ill?

I hope you find the help you need for your teen. I wish you all the best.
