Bipolar parent and effects on child
Q: I'd like to know if you could provide me with any information on a
bio-polar parent. The effects this mental illness can cause a child. Thank you
for your time.
Dear Traci --
I'm sorry not to be sure just what you're asking, but in any case I expect
you'll find some information that should help on the website for parents when
there's bipolar disorder in the family: www.bpkids.org.
If you're asking about whether a parent's illness can be genetically
transmitted, and how often, read my
page on that.
