No matter the disorder, no matter the age, your child needs you to stand by her always. Even if she can’t express how badly she needs you. Even if you don’t understand mental illness. Even if you don’t know how to help her. Do everything you can. Be passionate. Tell her you love her. Learn everything you can. Sometimes knowledge and love are all we have. These tools are more powerful than anything else in the world. We will get through the rough patches because we have to.

Stay strong. We can do this.
