Hello and welcome to HCM,
Thank you for your query.
At first, bi-polar disorder did carry a social stigma in the past, but is now treatable and does not require isolation or sedation.
Yes maam, the right course of therapy and counselling
will help greatly. All you need to make sure of is that your son follows the course and listens to advise given to him by his doctor/counselor.
Please do not think of your son as any less or one who cannot socialize, once he realizes he needs help, he shall reach forward for it. Kindly consult a doctor and help your son.
I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.
