My son has bipolar disorder. I recently attended a Eolas programme in Carrick on Shannon which was organised by the HSE mental health services there. The programme was for family members like me who have someone with a diagnosis of Bipolar. The programme was delivered by a professional from the local mental health service and a family member of someone who has bipolar. The programme was such a positive experience. I have learnt so much about mental illness and feel so much better equiped to know how to deal with my family member when he becomes unwell. Hearing other family members experiences made me realise that we are not alone. I recommend this programme to anyone who needs help in supporting their family member if they have this diagnosis.
