    There are a number of places that you can begin to find support. The first is your primary care doctor. If that is not an option there are many organizations that can point you in the right direction and get you connected with services in your area. Have you considered contacting SAMHSA ?

    This link from HHS.gov could also be a good place for you to start.
    Have you tried looking for a support group in your area? Receiving encouragement, learning coping skills, and sharing concerns with other could really help you. If you think that meeting with others would trigger more social anxiety, coming to a place like this online support group to share your concerns and ask questions is a great.

    Here is some information about treatment options for bipolar disorder that you may find helpful, as well as this link to all of our content on bipolar disorder. Furthermore, here is a link to all of our ADHD content, as well as some home-treatment options for your social anxiety that you might try while working to find a way to get help from a medical professional.

    Please let us know how you are doing, and as always, we are here if you need us!
