The support group is intended as an informal forum for education, support and socialization among patients diagnosed with depression, bipolar disorders or related mood disorders, their families and friends, and others interested in learning about the illness and offering support.
DBSA groups are strictly peer-led groups, with no professional involvement as part of regular group meetings. Participation in such groups has been proven to assist in coping with and recovering from mood disorders. Meetings are led by trained facilitators.
DBSA provides hope, help, support, and education to improve the lives of people who have mood disorders.24 HOUR HOTLINE!
