This past spring, a local theater near Salem, MA, addressed a serious topic – mental illness. The Marblehead Little Theater performed the rock musical Next to Normal, a Tony award-winning musical that focuses on one family’s dealings with mental illness. The mother in the story suffers from bipolar disorder and the family learns how to care for her. The performers hope that this production helps people to have a more positive view of individuals who suffer from mental health disorders.

Helping People with Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a serious mental health disorder that affects people across the country. Life with bipolar disorder is not easy, and those who suffer from it are affected daily. There is no known cure for this disorder of the brain, but it is treatable. Various therapies are used to help those with bipolar disorder to cope with their symptoms and live more healthfully:

  • Psychotherapy. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, family therapy or group therapy can be used to help individuals recognize their issues and learn better ways to deal with them.
  • Support groups. These groups involve being around others who suffer from the same disorder. Individuals in these groups can offer mutual support and learn from each other about ways to cope with their condition.
