Bipolar Bears - A storybook for children who have a mum or dad with bipolar disorder
This beautifully illustrated children's book, finished in watercolour, is for children 5 years and above. It helps them to understand the behaviours associated with experiencing bipolar disorder.
The book follows the story of Daddy Bear and his family as he has a bipolar episode. His children are dragged along on his rollercoaster ride where he starts many activities - but before they are finished, he moves onto the next. The story explains what can happen during a manic episode and then how medical care and rest helped calm Daddy Bear's very busy brain.
