“When my daughter was diagnosed bipolar my family blamed me, my marriage was strained, my son was scared and my daughter became even more isolated. Thanks to Indus we were supported and connected to the right resources. We got our hope, spirit and pride back. Calling Indus was the best thing I could have done!” Z
