Is Bipolar over diagnosed or just better identified now?

I sure see a lot of teens diagnosed with bipolar. I think there is so much overlap within mental health diagnosis that it can get confusing. What are your thoughts on this?

I will say one of the good things is all the alternatives for treatment in terms of medication they have now for bipolar. They've really done a good job at developing these and they are so much easier to take than older meds.
