Advice & Tips: The problem with going to a support group for the mentally ill is that everyone there is crazy. :P But seriously, I had major personality conflicts with someone there who wasn't even supposed to be there, and talking to the group leader didn't help.

Advice & Tips: I started attending this group for Bipolar because I could not find a group for my condition. I felt very judged because of my age in the group. I feel that money that was "requested" at one meeting was not for intended purposes. A few days later the hospital confirmed this. The people attending the group had been doing so for years yet I saw no change or progression in recovery or stability.
