If your child’s mental health is affected by bipolar disorder, knowing how to help their wellness can be a real challenge. Luckily, Heather Rose, a contributing writer for The Ultimate Survivor series of guides, has released another helpful guide for parents and their children on the subject of bipolar disorder, entitled 7 Strategies to Help Your Children Cope with Bipolar Today.
To date, Heather Rose has released six different titles which are all designed to help families and their loved ones to know how to better cope with bipolar disorder, and guard their wellbeing against the damaging effects of the condition. Each of Heather’s titles deal with different aspects of the condition. She explained, ‘It’s a completely different approach when dealing with children who have bipolar disorder than it is with adults. While most adult conditions are typically treated with drugs and medications, this isn’t always the case when attempting to help children who suffer.’
The statistics demonstrate that more and more children are being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, even though it was assumed, until relatively recently, that bipolar disorder most commonly only affected adults. Heather commented, ‘This is exactly the reason I decided to create guides specifically for helping children. Actually, it’s more of a guide for helping both parents and their children to more effectively deal with bipolar disorder. Parents are often quite confused, or they don’t have the proper information to help in a more conducive way, so the guide is for them too.’
She continued, ‘When you’re parenting a child with bipolar disorder, it’s usually just as stressful for the parents as it is for the child. There is the added stress of wondering how your child’s bipolar disorder is going to affect their future, along with many other concerns. It’s only natural to want the best for your children. If parents can start giving their children better tools to work with for dealing with their bipolar disorder, the more equipped they will be when they begin entering the adult years of their life.’ Heather added, ‘It’s a topic that I’ve had a lot of personal experience with in my life too, and I’ve grown passionate about helping others with it as well.’
