New to the Site

Hello,

I am new to this site. My 15 year old son has a diagnosis of PDD, Bi-Polar Depression and Anxiety Disorder. I want to try to find a support group for him whether it be online or a group that meets. I would also like to talk with other parents of children with these issues and get some ideas on how to help him. Especially with friends. He hass a difficult time making and holding onto friends. Anything anyone can suggest would be helpful. Thank you.
