The Best Care in the Area
Bipolar disorder is also known as manic-depressive illness and is a brain disorder that causes extreme, often sudden shifts in energy, mood, and/or activity levels. It’s estimated that 4.4% of U.S. adults experience bipolar disorder at some point in their lives and 3.3 million individuals suffer from it every year.
This disorder usually begins in adolescence or early adulthood and unfortunately, it’s often not easily recognized. Because symptoms can vary in severity and from individual to individual, it is sometimes mistaken for other illnesses (such as substance abuse or trouble in school or the workplace).
How We Can Help
At New Generations, we understand bipolar disorder affects everyone differently, which is why we make sure our staff members receive training courses and in-depth knowledge about the illness. This lets them connect with and assist the individuals in our Gary’s Gang program who manage bipolar disorder.
Being able to replace unhealthy, negative behaviors with positive ones can have a lasting impact on those who are bipolar. In our Gary’s Gang program, we encourage positive thoughts, actions, communication, socialization, and more to help promote a constructive lifestyle and reduce stress.
Consistency can be beneficial to those with bipolar disorder and at New Generations, we can help individuals establish routines. From planned meals to daily activities to one-on-one sessions and more, we can keep things familiar and anticipated for better mood management and a happier state of mind.
At New Generations, we’re all about love, and the place it shows most is in Gary’s Gang. From our staff members to our bipolar disorder individuals, we’ve created a community that is caring, accepting, loving, and warm. We pay close attention to our members and offer one-on-one care when it’s needed, but mostly, we love to have fun and enjoy life.
