Laura's Story

DMDD first appeared as a new psychiatric diagnosis in the 5th edition of the DSM-5, published in 2013. My son was diagnosed with the disorder a week later. Little was known about DMDD at that time, which made our journey through diagnosis and treatment very challenging and lonely. Once my son stabilized, I decided to dedicate my time to helping other DMDD families find the resources they need to navigate this difficult diagnosis. The first step was to launch this website to bring all known information about DMDD into one location and establish a community of hope and support. It's not an easy journey, but if we help each other, the burden is lighter. You are not alone -
