Hi there hon,

Sorry to hear about your mum in hospital. Having Bipola can be hard on the person as well as the family. However, on the right form of treatment things can improve for your mum.

Pyshcosis can happen in biploar especially the manic phrases.

Hope this helps !!!! Let us know what happens with your mum hon.
