How can I help my adult child suffering with Bipolar?
In this episode, Winston Smith, Mike Emlet, and Chris Carter seek to help equip those who want to act redemptively in the life of an adult child suffering with bipolar disorder. The discussion revolves around this listener’s question: “our adult daughter was just diagnosed with bipolar disorder after a manic break with reality. During the course of the manic episode, she quit her job and acted out, which culminated in a hospitalization. We moved her back to our home, as she has no family or financial resources. We’ve learned of a residential Christian-based program which we’ll be sending her to. We’ve assembled a good care team for her, but are a little overwhelmed by the prospects and implications of this disorder. Do you have any advice for us on how to deal with this situation?” Listen to learn what it can look like to walk alongside the struggler and be strategic in providing effective interventions and long-term care.
