Introduction and Bipolar daughter
My name is Martha and I am the mother of a 16 year old daughter and a 14 year old son. It is quite possible my daughter has bipolar. We saw a therapist last week and she was pretty certain it was bipolar. We are waiting to get in to see the psychiatrist, however that is not until the end of March. In the meantime, how do I help my daughter cope with her depression and manic state enough to be productive in school? I am not sure I want to get an IEP for her, however I do want to let her teachers know what is going on.
I joined this group for support and advice. I am at a loss on how to help my daughter. Thanks.
