Families for Depression Awareness is responding to the incredible demand from you—our friends and supporters—to provide a webinar training addressing bipolar disorder in adults.

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

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