A TROUBLED young woman who head-butted her neighbour in the face was diagnosed with bipolar and personality disorders.
Magistrates were told last week that since the attack Amie Hemmings, 26, has spent some time in a mental health centre where doctors have confirmed she suffers from depressive disorders.
Hemmings, of Millard Terrace, Dagenham, fought with her former friend in August last year after a fall out.
Hemmings believed the victim was trying to interfere in her relationship with her boyfriend.
She went to the victim's house and kicked the door, when the woman answered Hemmings head butted her on the nose and dragged her into the corridor by her hair.
The fight was broken up by two men who were at the victim's address.

Police were called and Hemmings was arrested and admitted the assault.
She was then charged but has since spent time at a mental health centre.
At Barking Court last week Hemmings pleaded guilty to assault but her case was adjourned so that a court report could be compiled on her.
She was released on conditional bail, under orders not to contact the victim or visit her address, and will be sentenced on February 25.
