So my mom is bipolar and she has taken medicine for the disease about twenty years ago, but since about fifteen years ago, she stopped taking them. She is in denial even though many of my mother's side of the family is bipolar. When we urge her to take the medicine again, she becomes extremely irritated. Is there another way to help someone whose bipolar without them taking medication?
