Who is a Caregiver?

There are many roles to be filled in the life of a person struggling with a mood disorder.

Caregiver: Does this describe you?

Family and friends of someone who is struggling with a mood disorder play a crucial role in helping them through their difficult times. As a caregiver, you are in a unique position to offer support that is different from what a mental health or medical professional can provide.

You may be the first person to notice changes in your loved one's behavior or mood. You can use this knowledge to intervene and help improve their situation. Through your support, you can help them find the resources and treatment they need to manage their mental health.

If you are providing this kind of support, you are a Caregiver.
