For those living with bipolar disorder, having a strong support system is crucial for managing the condition and maintaining stability. Caregivers, whether family members or friends, play an invaluable role in this process.

“It is necessary for caregivers to psychoeducate themselves about the symptoms, treatment options, and potential challenges so they can prepare themselves for any difficulty. This also helps to provide better support.” says Aswathi Prasad, clinical psychologist at Niyama Digital Healthcare. The Palakkad-based psychologist also adds that remembering to take care of themselves is also essential.
