From age 12 I grew up in a single parent family with a mother with a mental illness for many years. As a young teenager, I had no idea where to go to for advice and support.  Finally, as a young adult I have summoned the courage to talk to a consellor about my experiences. I am finding it very usful and am getting some strategies for better coping and managing our relationship.

She recommended these forums as a way to perhaps meet other people who ahve been through similar experiences. So i'm wondering if there is anyone out there who also grew up with a parent with a mental illness?
