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