How old is she?: Contact a mental health clinic & ask 4 an evaluation ASAP Let them know that you are fearful around her and that she needs to be seen on an urgent basis. If she is a minor, just get her 2 the appointment, they will help you with how to explain why you are having her seen. If she is an adult, talk 2 the clinic about options if she refuses 2 come for evaluation. Feel free 2 ask additional questions

Get eval now.: Childhood bipolar disorder is now called disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD) (with the advent of DSM 5). Strongly encourage child psychiatric evaluation as soon as possible.
