Coping with bipolar disorder

Coping with bipolar disorder

Andrea has suffered from bipolar disorder and drug addiction for most of her adult life. Historically, when she was manic, she threw caution to the wind. When she was depressed, however, she would often end up using drugs as a way to cope with her stress, moods and thoughts.  When introduced to Andrea, she was homeless, depressed and felt hopeless.  With U.S. Care, Andrea received mental health skill building interventions weekly that allowed her to become capable of living independently.  U.S. Care assisted with finding community resources and services that assisted Andrea with finding housing, manage her money, and assist with her mood stabilization and addictions.  By her own admission, Andrea is now able to express her feelings and think of healthy alternatives to her problems.  She feels hopeful and is able to live independently.
