In addition to being a Licensed Independent Social Worker and having a Diplomate in Clinical Social Work, I too am a consumer of mental health resources having been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder since 1977. I appreciate the information you have available for both the professionals and consumers. I do a support group one day a week and share information relevant to the topics brought up...thank you for all you do.

I like this perspective on recovery and was wondering if it's available in other languages? Specifically I'd love to have a copy in Spanish. Thanks!
