JBRF is an organization that actively promotes and supports scientific research focused on the cause of and treatments for bipolar disorder in children.
We are the first and only non-profit foundation dedicated solely to promoting research to identify the source of early-onset bipolar disorder. Read more about JBRF
JBRF sponsored investigators have looked long and hard at the total symptom profile of thousands of children diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

Investigators are confident that they have identified a true, brain-based, heritable condition which has a broad range of symptoms and which is strongly correlated to problems with how the body regulates temperature.
