In brief: A variety of things

Can cause mood swings.
Family problems, financial meltdowns, significant health challenges, educational plans going off track can all be a stimulus for the mood swings. More seriously it could be some form of bipolar disorder where mood swings are always a part of the disorder. That, and sleep problems and chronic agitation are part of almost every type of bipolar disorder.
