Question Bipolar bf

My bf was told he has a high possibilty of being bipolar,but sence then hes moved to another city with me,that has a sh*tty mental health plan. He says his mood is really bad and he would like to try to find someone to help and possibly get meds so he can function alittle better,and im completely supportive,expect for two things. 1.I dont know how to help him find a good center to go to. 2.im worried the meds might not work,or make him worse. : /

Help??????

Also idunno how to help him when hes in the middle of an episode. Any tips or ideas?

The only way to find a good center I guess is trial and error, the same with the meds. All you can do is try. You can change centers or be taken off meds if they're not being effective, but if you're not prepared to try then you there won't be any improvement.

And this is how the tale begins.
Its your life, exist and wonder why.

I second what Kathy said.

Also two friends of mine recently got married and the husband is bipolar, what she seems to do is go along with him and seem like she's as high as he is but then when he starts suggesting silly things she manages to talk him out of it.

Maybe try it when he gets high

When he's low I guess try talking to him and stuff, try to reasure him and make him feel better.

You can discuss with his parents and find center - and see if it helps him.
Give it a shot!

Take it from somebody who is bipolar meds aren't needed he won't be himself if he is on them he will still show signs of it but can control it to sum degree if he is in an episode then sit him down and say calm down and comfort him

Be gentle to the weak
be courageous to the strong
be terrible to the wicked
all women should be held sacred
we will stand defense of one another
we will be merciful to all men
and we will be gentle of deed true of friendship and faithful of love.
