The past few months have been busy as we readied the revision of The Bipolar Child for its September publication date, and as we continue to launch the first programs of the Juvenile Bipolar Research Foundation. Last week JBRF launched its professional listserv for physicians. This is the first online forum for physicians from around the world who treat or supervise the treatment of children and adolescents diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The board of JBRF is extremely concerned that there are only child psychiatrists throughout this country most residing in more urban areas and we hear from parents everyday who cannot find a doctor to evaluate, diagnose and treat their children. JBRF envisions that this listserv, a rapid peer consultation service for those on the front lines, will provide an efficient vehicle for members to learn and communicate about clinical experience, differential diagnosis, treatment outcomes, and adverse effects to medications. In the next few weeks, JBRF will begin subscribing psychologists, neuropsychologists, social workers and therapists to a second professional listserv so that professionals seeing these children can share information and ideas as to what works best for the children and their families.
