Abstract: The objective of this retrospective study was to determine the frequency of Bipolar Disorder in children and adolescents referred to the Child Guidance Clinic (CGC), St. Luke’s Hospital, Malta, over a year. Diagnostic criteria were analyzed and compared to current literature. Of 141 children, none were diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. Further awareness of clinicians is advised, to identify Bipolar Disorder, thus limiting its long term morbidity and mortality.
