Young Adult Council - Navigating budgets and insurance while living with a mood disorder
Sticking to a budget and navigating insurance can be tough for anyone, especially if they are living with a mood disorder. Members of DBSA Young Adult Council provide practical tips to stay financially healthy while living with depression or bipolar. They also break down some insurance jargon you may not be familiar with and share personal stories about using their healthcare coverage.
Faith & Mental Health: Wellness in a Faith Community
Faith and mental health can be a hot topic for discussion. Join DBSA Young Adult Council co-chairs, Danyelle and Megan, as they share their wellness experiences within the context of their faiths, dispel myths, and provide valuable suggestions for not only faith communities but the public in general.
In late December, Jill, a mother of seven children, including a 15-year-old living with a mood disorder, took the time to talk with a DBSA staff member about her family’s journey with mental health. This 25-minute discussion included how Jill learned what her child needed, her personal coping skills, and her hopes for the mental health community. Throughout this discussion, Jill conveyed her wish that families have hope that things can get better.
