          A House Divided

          August 31, 2010

          When it comes to families, conflict is nearly inevitable, but when you add the stress of a mental illness, it can divide even the closest knit family.

          What’s Best for Katherine?
          Coni’s 18-year-old daughter, Katherine, has had bipolar disorder since age 12. Since then, her behavior has been violent and erratic, and Coni says the chaos is tearing the family apart. Coni’s husband has threatened divorce, her oldest son has moved out, and her youngest daughter says her childhood was awful. Her family thinks Katherine should be institutionalized, but Coni says that’s not an option.

          What does Dr. Phil think of Katherine’s diagnosis?
