Coping and Support for Families.
The daily challenges for children with Bipolar Disorder and their families should not be underestimated. Fortunately, there is plenty of support available to help them cope if they know where to look for it — from schools, healthcare professionals, hospitals, and national and local organizations.
Support groups are a vital resource for parents, siblings, other family members and friends of a child or adolescent with Bipolar Disorder. When no one seems to understand what you are going through, they provide an opportunity to exchange experiences, information, ideas, and tips that can help you meet the challenges of caring for your child or teen with Bipolar Disorder, and caring for yourself, too.
Ask your doctor or mental health professional to help you find a support group near you.
