I agree. A little understanding DOES go a long way. Mental illnesses are usually as unpreventable to the sufferer than most physical illnesses. Not only that, but bipolar is largely PHYSICAL! So is schizophrenia. A LOT of what was thought to be purely a MENTAL disease years ago they've found have physical roots.

People should learn from past results rather than repeating them over and over again. It does go a long way.

Just don't have any mental illness on the Harbor if you have private insurance...only treatment for those on Medical assitance through the RSN..

else-wise you may have to travel as far as Tacoma to be able to get an appointment with a psychiatrist (the ones that can give necessary meds to stabilize the brain chemicals)

It's very tragic that she suffers from this. It can be quite distressing for friends and family - one moment the person's happy and hyperactive, and the other moment she's on the verge of committing suicide!

Understanding does go a long way, but not only when it comes to mental health...a little understanding could solve many of the world's problems if you stop to think about it.

I should add, it's also good more people are finding it acceptable to seek therapy.

It is terrible when a loved one or someone close to you suffers from an afflication like this. Moods can swing so quickly, and so completely it's a lot of mental anguish and tryingt o stay positive is really hard...
