My spouse has PPD in conjunction with a mood disorder. He has been clean for 10 years, so that is a help.

I found this site while looking for assistance myself. Therefore, I don't have much information to provide.

However, I can highly recommend NAMI National and the local affiliates. Most states & cities have their own chapters which offer peer support groups for family members and educational classes for family members. The classes provide education on a variety of mental illnesses/brain disorders, how to deal with these illnesses and crisis situations, and how to take care of yourself.

NAMI also sponsers dual diagnosis support groups for the ill family member. These groups are not based on The Big Book or The White Book which have been found to be largely ineffective in regards to dual diagnosis.

Good luck & Godspeed to you all.
