“Mood disorders can have a tremendous impact on individuals, but with diagnosis, treatment, and strong support such as the education and communities DBSA champions, people who live with mood disorders can lead full, joyful lives. DBSA has a long history of creating meaningful change for people who suffer from mental illness, and I am excited to be a part of that work.”
