DBSA to Partner with the Mighty
June 23, 2016

DBSA is excited to announce a new partnership between DBSA and the Mighty, an online health community, whereby DBSA's resources will be brought in front of Mighty’s wide readership. DBSA will also have a growing home page on the Mighty’s site. As organizations dedicated to supporting people living with mood disorders, we hope to reach even more through this partnership.

The Mighty is a story-based, online health community focused on improving the lives of people facing disability, disease, and mental health conditions. More than half of Americans are facing serious health conditions or medical issues; they want more than information—they want to be inspired. The Mighty publishes real stories about real people facing real challenges. 

Submit a story to the Mighty and make your voice heard!
