You’re not alone — discover a support network based on real acceptance
Living with a mood disorder can be isolating and frustrating. And it doesn't help that the nature of illnesses such as depression and bipolar disorder are still misunderstood by many. This can leave sufferers and their families feeling stigmatized and alone.
