Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD) - Facts for Families

Children with disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD) have severe and frequent temper tantrums that interfere with their ability to function at home, in school, or with their friends. Some of these children were previously diagnosed with bipolar disorder, even though they often did not have all the signs and symptoms. Research has also demonstrated that children with DMDD usually do not go on to have bipolar disorder in adulthood. The American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's Facts for Families provides concise and up-to-date information on disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD) for families.
