Martin is a young patient affected by bipolar disorder who has received care at the Douglas. Help us support youth mental health and make a full recovery possible for all those who are suffering.
I thought I was
Without help from the Douglas, Martin wouldn’t have been able to manage his bipolar disorder. Mental health problems are particularly tragic because they often start at a young age.
We believe the fight against youth mental illness begins with building hope, one young patient at a time. Our goal is to streamline and enhance early diagnosis. To help our young patients as quickly as possible and get the support of a patient specific, multidisciplinary team of mental health experts, who can accompany them and their family in their time of need with professional support.
