: Is there anyone out there who has found a good board and care facility for a young adult of 25-35 years of age who suffers from bipolar disorder? If so, please respond to Cynthia who lives in Southern California.
: So far, I have only heard of bad board and care facilities who do not know how to show these patients respect and I am at my wits end. It is also difficult to find friends for my son with this disorder. He is so handsome and he has such a heart of gold, he is just confused and depressed. Please help me. I have missed time from work and it affects my whole family. All he wants is friends and some love from others. He already knows his family loves him. He just wants somef friends who can accept him for who he is.
cynthia, you do not mention if your son is on medication for bipolar. when i was in the hospital for sever depression, there were severl others there with bipolar. they were there until the meds were regulated. i have know severl people who are successfully living outside a facility due to medication being regulated to them. check with his doctor. i wish i could name some institutions there in calif, but i am in michigan. try searching on the internet for facilities and get feed back from individuals who may have insite information on different facilities. hope this helps a little, anyway
