disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder
that has a significant impact on the loved ones of those who suffer
as well as those who suffer from the illness. Different from the
normal ups and downs that everyone goes through, the symptoms of
bipolar disorder are severe, and they often leave family members
reeling, searching for solutions from therapists, psychologists,
psychiatrists, other mental health professionals and support groups
in order to help their loved ones with bipolar. The disorder often
contributes to additional character flaws, personality disorders
and can result in damaged relationships, poor job or school performance
and even suicide. But there is good news: bipolar disorder can
be treated, and people with this illness can lead full and productive
lives. One of the most important elements to successful recovery
is learning about bipolar by the person who suffers and their loved
ones, and then building a support network of loved ones made up
of family and/or friends.
If you are a loved one of someone with bipolar and want to be a part of their support network (a potentially life or death element of their recovery), we recommend that you check out our publications links for more information, and check out some of the sites listed below.
