It’s a sign of the times! Child Adolescent Bipolar Foundation (CABF) has changed their name to The Balanced Mind Foundation. According to this link, this change reflects their own research that children experience a number of “working labels” with co-morbid conditions making the word bipolar limiting. So to better serve the community, the organization is broadening their scope. You can read more about it in the link below. If you haven’t check out this site, it’s a must-do for any parent who’s raising a child with mood issues.

I’m curious, does anyone object to this change? I read on the website that some members were disappointed for losing the “bipolar emphasis”. What do you think?
