i am asking this about my daughters boyfriend he is 17 and i am 37 where do i click accept
Thank you for the further information. You don't need to click accept until after I answer your question (which I will do now). It is very common for people with bipolar disorder to get depressed, and even suicidal. Although some people with bipolar do have anger issues when they are in the manic phase of their illness, many people don't exhibit any anger, and then most noticeable symptoms are mania and depression. With the depression, one can definitely feel suicidal. If this is the case with your daughter's boyfriend. please encourage him to get some help.

Best wishes, and please let me know if I can answer any further questions. Tamara
