According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, more than 10 million Americans have bipolar disorder. Additionally, about 25 million Americans will have an episode of major depression this year. These mental illnesses not only affect the person coping with the issue. They impact the person’s family and friends in profound ways as well. Oakwood hosts a support group at Oakwood Hospital - Taylor for the family and friends of those with depression and bipolar disorder. Kathy Zatyracz is the facilitator of the group and we welcome her to the program.
