You have seen the difference that DBSA can make in the life of someone living with a mood disorder—either yourself as a peer, as a family member or friend. You have witnessed the power of peer support to improve and save lives and you want to ensure that people have access to the resources that DBSA provides.
While it is impossible to put a value on the difference DBSA can make in someone’s life, the reality is that there is a cost. DBSA is able to provide free and accessible support groups, innovative wellness programs and online and printed educational tools only because caring individuals and organizations understand the importance of our work and care enough to either support us directly, or, just as critically, reach out to others to ask for their support of DBSA and the people we serve every day, year after year.
By becoming a DBSA Ambassador, or supporting someone who is, you can help DBSA to provide hope and support for people living with mood disorders. Anyone can be a DBSA Ambassador. All you need is the desire to make life better for people living with depression or bipolar disorder.
