Knowledge is power!

My boyfriend and I have been with each other for ten (going on eleven).

There are times that when I am having trouble with my schizophrenia and bipolar, my significant other has problems understanding and dealing with my server brain disorder

We are learning that the more that we learn about my serious mental illness and ways to cope with it, makes experience and experiences on and around his life, my life and others lives more  easier to live with.

I need a free grant for me and my boyfriend to pay for courses on how to learn, cope, and adapt with my disablatating brain disorder hands on as unfortunately my other half can only read at roughly a 3rd grade reading level.

Well that's certainly an interesting question. My first suggestion is that you check out your local library. You know, that place where they have lots of hard copy books --- and they loan them out for free! The reference desks at public libraries are very helpful and could probably lead you to a resource more expertly than google can. I'm being completely serious -- the library is a great place for you to start! You should also check out the government's website for those with disabilities (and their caregivers). It does a great job leading you to resources that are available right in your local area. And it may have a section about getting educational grants for dealing with a disorder.

My better half has a reading disability, and has glaucoma and needs people who are clearly heavily educated in my area of troubles...... plus, I can help him in classes and learn coping and rehabilitation skills for my schizophrenia, & my bipolar disorder. 

We attend a conference every year that teaches people like us how to learn coping skills for the Mentally challenged further more, there are many other people attending that will be able to comfort each other as they will be going through the same thing.

It is clear across the state and we need to eat get there and room and board.

We live in Miles City MONTANA and it is held in Helena Montana.

We have calculated our expense to be 1,700$ 

Will you help a desperate couple?
