Can anyone offer a really good book for our son to read about being bipolar? Also one that won’t scare him. Thanx again for all your help!!

I can't recommend a book but I have watched some good videos on YouTube that are informative without being scary. Documentaries are often scary, at least to me they are.

Dr Tracey Marks has a good channel with lots of practical advice about all mental illnesses but especially bipolar. Here's just one video, but if you search her channel you'll find many videos about bipolar.

Note: I do not have bipolar but I have a friend who does and watching Dr Marks has helped me understand her better.
