About Us ____
DBSA Bergen County is a
support group which meets weekly in Paramus, NJ. We are affiliated with DBSA (Depression Bipolar Support Alliance). The group has been in existence
since 1986, previously as the DMDA or Depressive Manic-Depressive Support Group
of Bergen County.
Patients with a diagnosis of major depression or bipolar illness
(manic-depression), as well as their families and friends are welcome to join
our rap sessions.
Occasionally, there are informative lectures by professionals dealing with these
illnesses, instead of rap sessions.
Either rap Groups (or lectures when announced) are held 7:30 pm until 9:30 pm
every Thursday (except holidays) at Bergen Regional Medical Center (once called
Bergen Pines Hospital), 230 E Ridgewood Ave, Paramus NJ, room E218 in the
Psychiatric Behavioral Health Pavilion (Bldg 14).
