Introducing Bipolar Parenting

Parenting is hard work. Ask any parent and they’ll admit as much (if they’re being honest!).

Imagine, however, parenting with an invisible handicap that many people don’t understand. Yet that’s what millions of parents face every day when they have a mental health concern like bipolar disorder or depression, and still have to be the best parent possible to their children.

Worse yet, there are few resources available for parents struggling with their own issues. That’s why I’m pleased to introduce Bipolar Parenting with Rebecca Moore. She hopes the blog will act as a way to reach out and help other parents cope during the tough times. Rebecca is a well-known “bipolar mother,” activist and author. You can learn more about her here.

So please join me in welcoming Rebecca to Psych Central over at her new blog, Bipolar Parenting now!
