A MESSAGE FROM YOUR STOP THE STIGMA TEAM AT DANTE......

What is a mood disorder?

A mood disorder is a feeling or sense of loss of control of our emotions in which we experience distress, varying from anxiety to depression. Mood disorders are very common, affecting 1 in 5 young people with symptoms generally appearing between the ages of 14 and 15. When diagnosed early, there is nearly a 100% change of recovery. Today in the cafeteria during all three lunches, visit information booths, play fun and informative games for prizes or speak with our local public health nurses about mood disorders. Melissa Corcoran from CAMH will also be there to share her story about mental illness or to answer any questions you may have.

We hope to see you there!
