Partnering with DBSA

DBSA improves and saves lives every day.

Participation in a local support group, access to a brochure or online information about a suspected or already diagnosed condition, tools to aid in their recovery, and a staff ready to answer questions can each be the difference between hope and despair, life and death, for someone living with a mood disorder. We are proud to say that we reach millions of people each year with the life-changing and life-saving support they need.

None of this would be possible without the support of our DBSA Community Partners, each as unique as the individuals we serve. We know that all of our supporters share with us the common goal of getting help to people living with mood disorders where, when, and how they need it. We look forward to working with you to develop a personalized strategy that increases our effectiveness while ensuring that you achieve your own unique philanthropic goals.
