DPD works together with Mental Health America, National Alliance on Mental Illness, Green Oaks Hospital, Timberlawn Mental Health System, and anyone else dealing with the mental health population. DPD and mental health advocates and providers have become a resource for one another and have become members of the same team in the community.
