Bipolar Disorder Caregiver Tips
The consequences of manic and depressive episodes often affect not only the bipolar sufferer but their family members, friends, and colleagues, as well. Because of this, it is crucial that those close to the sufferer be educated in the symptoms and effects of the disorder so that they are better able to recognize the onset of episodes, to help their loved one deal with the effects of the episode while it is in progress, and to cope with stresses that the disorder can place on relationships.
It can be helpful for family members to participate in family counseling or therapy sessions so that they can learn how to provide support to the patient.
