Balance Mind Parent Network offers online support networks for parents of children with depression or bipolar disorder ranging from toddler to 'transition age' (meaning late teens, 'twentysomethings').
Family Helpline answers inquiries within 72 hours, and offers an archive of their award-winning podcast and blog for teens and 'twentysomethings,' as well as a professional resource directory that leads families to resources in their area. Also available is the online library, wellness information, and tools and resources for individuals living with mood disorders through their parent website, DBSAlliance.org.
The Balanced Mind Parent Network was created to connect parents from across the world who are raising a child living with a mood disorder. The family-focused community provides reliable information to parents about mood disorders, treatment, school accommodations, research, and more. The online network is segmented into 11 discussion boards that focus on varying topics and age ranges. The discussion boards are peer-led and moderated by a volunteer network of over 25 dedicated individuals. Membership for BMPN is $5 monthly.
