The grant is managed by Digital Ninjas pro bono. SUPER CRO does not give advice on diagnoses, symptoms, cure, or signs, you can find plenty of information about these in the websites listed below or from the DSM-5, or ICD-10 that are used in the medical model to enable psychiatrists to prescribe medication to their patients.
