From Our Clients

“I started looking into support for myself around coping and supporting my daughter who was diagnosed with Bipolar I 6 years ago. My search for support led me to a Tuesday night support group and Jenn Millan. Jenn and MIFSC were my support along with family and friends. I’m not sure I could have accomplished as much as I did in obtaining the support for my daughter that I did without Jenn’s guidance. To have a resource like MIFSC available to support and help guide families is more valuable than I can articulate.”
