You may want to discuss your experiences of managing mood swings with other relatives by posting on the REACT GROUP. You could share ideas on how to manage these, and get advice on how to access any further help you need.

Alternatively you might want to discuss your experiences with the REACT SUPPORTERS. They can listen to your experiences and help you think about which bits of REACT might be most helpful to go to next.
