Health Tip of the Month
Let Your Feelings Out: Talk, laugh, cry, and express anger when you need to. Talking with friends, family, a counselor, or a member of the clergy about your feelings is a healthy way to relieve stress.

Media of the Month
Watch: Brighter Days by The Lincoln Squares; video created by Jessica Beth Redish. “I conceived the story for the video based on stories I have read and heard, including Rebecca’s, and filmed the video on the North Shore of Chicago working with a team from Chicago and New York.

Quote of the Month
“I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know that just to be alive is a grand thing” – Agatha Christie

I’m Living Proof

Being diagnosed with a mood disorder as a teen can feel like a life sentence. Without success stories, it’s easy to think you will always feel this way and you won’t be able to have the life you had hoped for. Perhaps you remember this feeling when you were first diagnosed. Did life get better for you? Share your journey with teens experiencing mood disorders to give other’s hope because—you’re living proof!

I’m Living Proof is sponsored by Rebecca’s Dream.

Rebecca’s Dream promotes awareness and compassionate understanding of depression and bipolar disorder as real diseases.
