What are mood disorders?
Everyone has good days and bad days, but sometimes a bad day lasts for more than a few days or weeks.
If you think you may be experiencing depression or bipolar disorder, a good place to start is DBSA’s screening center.
What if I’m Having Suicidal Thoughts?
Suicidal thoughts can be scary and overwhelming which is why it’s important to let others know how you’re feeling. If you are having thoughts of death or suicide, call 1-800-273-8255, use Lifeline Chat, or text DBSA to 741-741. If you are not currently experiencing a crisis but have in the past, learn how to set up a safety plan.
