Can't help ya in Lansing other than to suggest you google mental health therapist in Lansing Michigan and see what comes up. Then call around to some of the local therapists' offices and ask about support groups. I have bipolar disorder and have mixed feelings about telling employers or in your case adviser about your illness. I'm not ashamed of my illness and look at it like anyother illness such as diabetes, just has to be treated correctly, but not all people understand mental illness and have a tendency to judge us unfairly. I have lost several jobs because I divulged about my illness. It really depends on the advisor and the type relationship you have. Just be very cautious, if you are studying for a career that could frown on mental illness, then I wouldn't do it. Isn't really anybody's business but you and your doctor anyway.
The following is a link to support groups is Lansing:
Hope this helps,
