I've heard domestic violence is a huge issue in Alaska. Care to comment?

After an individual has a juvenile bipolar break, is there any way to treat stunted mental development?

I know someone who had their initial break and required hospitalization at 13 years of age. At the time, the doctors all said this would freeze her mental abilities. Unfortunately, this has proven somewhat true- before any symptoms she was extremely gifted and now, decades later, has trouble with many adult things, requires daily assistance from her parents, and is extremely naive/gullible as if she's still a child. Is there anything that can be done to help move her back towards maturity?

She's stable, has been under continuous care since the initial diagnosis, understands why she needs medication, and takes it unsupervised.

So, there's really nothing that can be done at this point?

Good for you!
