I have been involved with this organization for the past eight years in a volunteer position of Board member, facilitator and other positions. This organization has helped hundreds of people diagnosed with a mood disorder, PTSD, or a co-occurring disorder. They have also saved many people from committing suicide and helped them get on a road to recovery. What I like about the organization is they help not only children and adults that are diagnosed but also their families. The teach the families ways to cope in a positive manner with their loved ones. This organization is an all volunteer organization and spends hundreds of hours per year helping individuals, educating the pulbic, participating in community events and is a very strong advocating organization within Nevada for those having a mental health problem. Without DBSA Southern Nevada's support my daughter and myself would not be alive today. They are a wonderful organization that is trustworthy, extremely knowledgeable and devoted to helping others.

I have found this organization to be extraordinary in its role in helping those with neuro-psychologica disorders recover from their illnesses. The amount of information presented to consumers in the Las Vegas community puts DBSA Southern Nevada in the forefront of leadership and advocacy for consumers of Southern Nevada. I have been a member of this organization for over one year and have watched my own personal growth improve by leaps and bounds.I continue to grow my experience by working with others to help them learn and live.
