Health Query

My son (13 years) has been diagnosed with bipolar depression. He is having this problem for last 2 years, but has been diagnosed 4 months ago. He is on medication. He is not going school for last 4 months, not ready to study at home n had severe phobia for studies n exams. Tried all methods but no counselling is working for him. Not only studies but other aspects of life are also affected. He has a great phobia of ?IF?. Like if I will fail the exams, if this will happen, that will happen n so on. He is very much stressed about future results. Understands the situation but when it comes to studies or going school he gets panicked n feels helpless. After that he has guilt feelings also for not going to school. I have checked other aspects also but he says that it?s all about studies. He had been a brilliant student. 2 years ago v moved to Gurugram. He scored well in exams except one subject (due to festival n family gathering). And teacher passed on a comment regarding less marks.
