The answer is YES if your husband, wife, lover, parent, child, or close friend is one of the more than 20 million Americans who suffer from depression or bipolar disorder. And if you wonder why the person you have known and loved for so long seems to have undergone a personality change, has become hard to reach, touchy and difficult to live with, and appears unwilling to accept your love and support, you have come to the right web site.

Here you will find information, coping strategies that enable you to offer more than love and sympathy, and equally important, many other people who share your experience. We understand, we know how hard it is, and we have suggestions about how to repair and preserve the relationship and keep your self-esteem intact.
