Support4Hope is dedicated to support of various mental health issues such as Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety Disorders, Schizophrenia, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the problems that arise from them along with other problems such as Domestic Abuse. We are sure that through a supportive environment, we can survive. We like to project the idea of being a survivor instead of a sufferer. When people have needs for support there is no one better to help them than people that have been through what they are going through and know it can be controlled.http://www.support4hope.com
