Welcome to TrueChildWithin.org

We are a not-for-profit corporation serving families affected by pediatric bipolar disorder throughout the greater Rochester area and surrounding counties.

Our mission is to provide support, education and advocacy for families who are affected by pediatric bipolar disorder.  We seek to foster awareness and understanding in collaborative ways to provide hope and transformation.

Visit us again as we update our site with additional information about pediatric bipolar disorder, our group, educational programs and activities. You can request more information by emailing Alison Whalen at alison@truechildwithin.org

Your involvement is Needed!

Our support group provides the much needed support, education and advocacy for families to discover that they are not alone...that the intense feelings and situations are faced by other families like their own.  And to share the triumphs and joys that their relatives and friends cannot always fully understand.

In order for our group to grow and continue to offer this much needed support, education and advocacy, we need volunteers who can spend 3-5 hours a month facilitating meetings, maintaining our website and helping plan events. Email Alison Whalen If you are interested.
