Highlights from 1.17.19 Cocktail and Conversation Event – Watch video and read transcript: An accurate diagnosis is a path to hope, Elizabeth Errico MA, LPC, NCC
Join us for an evening of Cocktails & Conversation to learn about the Juvenile Bipolar Research Foundation
We invite you to come learn more about juvenile bipolar disorder and some of the groundbreaking research JBRF is doing, including our sponsored researchers’ work to identify the Fear of Harm (FOH) syndrome, a specific diagnosis that may affect countless young people who have juvenile bipolar disorder. You will also learn about an affordable treatment discovery for FOH patients that can give them, and their families, hope for a more normal life.
Alice* is artistic, intelligent and on her third
school placement. Her parents remember that she was always very hot as a baby. Growing up she would constantly kick off the bed covers, often waking up in a pool of sweat with terrifying nightmares that no one could explain. She was often afraid to go to sleep. She would worry about everything, howled when she was separated from her parents and often demanded to sleep in their bed.
The JBRF has isolated and defined the Fear of Harm BPD phenotype, the first psychiatric illness to be associated with a heritable, physical biomarker. Click to view info graphic.
The First Longitudinal Study Using Intranasal Ketamine in the Treatment of the Fear of Harm Phenotype
This landmark study codifies years of clinical experience with intranasal ketamine which goes beyond the current research base to provide preliminary evidence of efficacy and safety over an extended period.

Many thanks for your continuing support of the Juvenile Bipolar Research Foundation. All progress we make is attributable to your extraordinarily consistent generosity.
Your contributions have helped fund research that has resulted in ground‐breaking studies that identified a novel subtype, and an effective treatment for the most severe form of juvenile‐onset bipolar disorder (referred to as the Fear of Harm subtype). The research led to a major expansion of knowledge in the field.
Dr. Papolos received an invitation to be interviewed for a segment on NPR’s Weekend Edition on childhood bipolar disorder that will air Sunday 4/24/2016 at 9:00am. The subject is being showcased because of a recent Tedx talk given by 16 y.o Eric Walton, the son of Liza Long, who published an article, “I am Adam Lanza’s Mother” several days after the Sandy Hook killings.
