Extreme aggression isn't a feature of Bipolar Disorder, though it can occur as PART of a number of disorders, including Bipolar, Depression, and Personality Disorders. From your description, Bipolar Disorder is a possible diagnosis, and sounds like a Manioc Episode, but the only way to be sure would be for him to see someone for a proper detailed assessment, preferably a good local psychiatrist, at least a good local GP. SOunds like something didn't work out at Bara, though I;m not clear what --- did the psychiatrist there do an assessment and make a diagnosis ? If so, what was the diagnosis ? If there is some question of him being any danger to himself or others, it is possible for the psychiatrist to invoke some provisions of the law to start compulsory treatment, and you might need to discuss this with that psychiatrist, who should not simply give up if "fired" by a psychotic or otherwise barmy patient. And call the social worker to let them know that he is trying to prevent you from seeing them, and ask for more definite help
