Internet Resources

Online support groups have been extremely useful in providing social support to parents who feel isolated [127]. Similar to in-person support groups, members of computer-mediated support groups receive information, advice, emotional support and contact with people in similar situations [128]. One positive outcome of the Internet groups was the creation of the Child and Adolescent Bipolar Foundation (CABF) in 1999 from the parent online support groups in the 1990s. The CABF website (www.bpkids.org) provides users with scientific information about diagnosis, symptoms and treatment of early onset bipolar disorder. Other aspects related to lives of bipolar disorder sufferers are also addressed. Other relevant websites are those of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) (www.ndmda.org), the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) (www.nami.org) and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) (www.nimh.nih.gov).
