The goals of the webinar were to guide families in
  • recognizing bipolar disorder
  • seeking treatment for themselves or their loved ones
  • effectively managing bipolar disorder, once diagnosed.

The training also covered the role of family members in helping someone with bipolar disorder and what to do if your loved one is manic or refusing treatment.
