Ask Tanya Byron: My sister refuses to get help for her mental illness – from The Times


Q I believe my sister has bipolar disorder and possibly other personality disorders, but I am struggling to get help for her because she doesn’t believe there’s anything wrong with her. Her doctor won’t talk to my mother, who is her carer and in her eighties, about it. My sister is in her fifties and the time is coming when one of her siblings will need to take over as carer, but we have no idea how to approach this.
