Christ yes I feel for you. She started at 16. Drugs didn’t end up helping, bipolar, lost what should have been her most fun years. It went deep significant time in treatment facilities, good expensive ones. They helped a little with coping skills she was paralyzed with anxiety at certain points. 4 years or so in she started to use some coping skills, thank you Austen Riggs, then She discovered diet and excercise along with recognizing when she need to pull back.

Focus on the smallest accomplishments baby steps

Now she is a field guide for wilderness therapy group in Utah after graduating college.

You have to give them all the support you can as long as it helps development.

bless you and good luck.
