Last week, Gabe shared all the things his parents did wrong when it came to helping him manage his bipolar disorder. This week, he tells us some of the things his parents got right. Dr. Nicole shares how many of her patients have tried to reconnect with estranged family members, and they both discuss ways to bring people back together. An inspiring, hopeful, and motivating episode awaits!
Please note: This is a continuing discussion from the previous Inside Bipolar episode, “Families Are Complicated and Bipolar Doesn’t Help (Part 1 of 2),” however, both episodes can stand alone.
