Parents, Partners, Friends & Bipolar Disorder: How to Give Support (Tx to bpHope)
One of the most difficult things for us is getting the support we need, isn't it? We don't want close friends and family to feel sorry for us; we want them to educate themselves on our condition and support us in our ongoing treatment and recovery. I can't stress how vital this is.
This article outlines the 10 ways family or loved ones can give their support to those folks in their lives living with mental health challenges. I learned a few things from it too. Feel free to pass it along to those you think could benefit from it.
Thank you and please come back later in the weekend for our next post.
