Diagnosing mental illness isn’t a straightforward science. We can’t test for it the same way we can test blood sugar levels for diabetes. Each condition has its own set of unique symptoms, though symptoms often overlap. Register for our Family Support Group to learn more. You will be able to share your concerns with people with lived experience – You are not alone.

We discuss: Major Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Manic Depression, Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorder, Panic Disorder and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Co-occurring Brain Disorders and Addictive Disorders, Consider taking a semester off from college – we have a lot to talk about!
