Hi @BPMum

Welcome to the forums! I'm one of the moderators, I hope you find the forums really helpful Smiley Happy


I'm sorry to hear that your mum has been recently diagnosed with Bipolar, that must be a huge change for her and for you. I hope forum members can give you some ideas as to early warning signs. Were you in contact with your mum when she became unwell recently? Were there things you noticed in her behaviour? 


I'm sure some forums members will jump in soon, here are some informative websites around Bipolar as well: Bipolar Australia and

And the Sane factsheet/guide on Bipolar


Take care and I hope to see you more on the forums,
