The son of a depressed but doting mother and a father who is serving time for tax evasion, wealthy teenager Charlie Bartlett — after being expelled from several private academies for various infractions — enrolls in a public school run by embittered alcoholic Principal Nathan Gardner, who was formerly a history teacher. Unable to fit in with most of his fellow students, Charlie is diagnosed with ADHD. He forms an alliance with school bully Murphy Bivens and offers him half the proceeds from the sale of a variety of prescription drugs Charlie obtains by feigning physical and emotional symptoms during sessions with different psychiatrists.

Before long, Charlie’s natural charm and likability positions him as the school’s resident therapist, offering advice within the confines of the boys’ bathroom. Charlie’s social life noticeably improves as he gains the confidence and admiration of the student body and begins to date the principal’s rebellious daughter, Susan. Complications arise when seriously depressed Kip Crombwell attempts suicide by swallowing a handful of anti-depressants provided by Charlie. Charlie befriends Kip after having an in-depth conversation with Principal Gardner. Charlie discovers Kip is writing a play about adolescent issues and pitches it to Gardner who is, at first, unsure but agrees when Kip says that it would make him less inclined to attempt suicide again.
