Intensive Mental Health Care

I am a young person with the dream of finishing college, living independently, and becoming a teacher. 
My severe mental health issues have gotten in the way of this goal again and again, I have been psychiatrically hospitalized 5 times within the last year and had to put my life on pause to take a medical leave from school. 

I am more than willing to put in the hard work to turn my life around, and I found the perfect DBT program through the Chicago DBT Institute that will help me learn the skills I need to reach my dreams. But unfortunately this program is expensive and does not accept insurance. 
I have tried all programs covered by my insurance, and more than anything want this opportunity to heal. Please consider giving even one dollar to help me get there.
