Supporting Youth Mental Health
DBSA is Supporting Youth Mental Health. There is a growing conversation around the impact of mental health symptoms in young people. Supporting Youth Mental Health is a three-year initiative to provide more resources to children, teens, and young adults who live with mood disorders and their parents and caregivers.
Thriving with Bipolar
In order to thrive, all aspects of a person must be evaluated including physical health, lifestyle, education, employment status or career goals, relationships, etc. Collaboration between health care providers and patients/clients is key to the future of treatment of mental health conditions if we hope to evolve to a person- or wellness-centered, whole-health approach.
When I joined I felt isolated and in crisis. I didn’t know where to turn. I found a supportive community of educated, helpful and kind parents who love their children very much. I desperately needed to know that my son could find light at the end of the tunnel. I found optimism and helpful suggestions.
