Mr Prem Rao,

If you could have been a bit more specific it would have helped.

If its family member, you could help by understanding that person's limitations, mood changes and allowing for these in your interactions with them. You could also help by making sure they take medication regularly and keeping an eye for side effect etc.

If you are talking about an employee, you could help by being considerate/flexible in terms of leave/work load.
