Childhood maltreatment, also referred as childhood trauma, increases the severity of Bipolar Disorders (BD). Childhood maltreatment has been associated with more frequent mood recurrences, however mostly in retrospective studies. Since scarce, further prospective studies are required to identify whether childhood maltreatment may be associated with the time to recurrence in BD.
