Though it's normal for children to run around, scream and sometimes play rough with other kids, how can you tell if your child's high energy levels are a problem?

Farai Chideya takes a closer look at dealing with kids' mental health issues with Cassandra Joubert, author of Losing Control: Loving a Black Child with Bipolar Disorder. Joubert has a daughter with bipolar disorder.

Then, we hear from Dr. Johnny Williamson, a child and adolescent psychiatrist with the Community Mental Health Council in Chicago.
