Mutual Aid Resources

Bipolar Significant Others

BPSO provides useful information and support to the families, friends and loved ones of those who suffer from bipolar disorder (manic depression). “These resources have helped many of us inform ourselves, cope with behaviors that sometimes arise from the illness, better understand our own reactions, and determine how we may best support our loved ones in their efforts to understand and live with this often terrible disease.” Its private, closed and unmoderated online listserv isn’t always available; however, the BPSO website offers many useful links to bipolar resources and websites. Members must not be diagnosed bipolar themselves.
