Living with Mum is a bit like a roller coaster ride.
At times, she is excited and full of energy, but at others, she is tired and withdrawn.
But she's always my mum, and we're sharing the ride.
For children who grow up in the care of a parent who has bipolar disorder, life can be filled with anxiety and uncertainty.
With the aid of a clear and simple information spread, this story helps us to understand the causes of bipolar disorder and how we can learn to live with someone who has it.
Developed in close consultation with families who have a parent with bipolar disorder, and created in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust.
