Although our group is only for adults age 19 and older, we recognize that kids and teens also live with mood disorders.  Here are some resources that may help younger people and their families:

In New Jersey


  • The Balanced Mind Parent Network (BMPN)

    The Balanced Mind Parent Network (BMPN), a program of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), guides families raising children with mood disorders to the answers, support and stability they seek.
  • Child Mind Institute

    The Child Mind Institute is dedicated to transforming mental health care for children everywhere.

    The goal of OK2TALK is to create a community for teens and young adults struggling with mental health problems and encourage them to talk about what they’re experiencing by sharing their personal stories of recovery, tragedy, struggle or hope.
  • Active Minds

    Active Minds is the leading nonprofit organization that empowers students to speak openly about mental health in order to educate others and encourage help-seeking.  We are changing the culture on campuses and in the community by providing information, leadership opportunities and advocacy training to the next generation.
  • The Jed Foundation

    The Jed Foundation’s mission is to promote emotional health and prevent suicide among college and university students.  To achieve this end, the organization collaborates with the public and leaders in higher education, mental health, and research.
