Peer support isn’t merely a concept; it’s a lifeline, offering roots to individuals amidst storms and guiding individuals towards community, wellness, and hope. Peer support among individuals living with mood disorders has been shown to help reduce hospitalization rates and the cost of mental health care, while increasing quality of life and engagement rates. Your support is needed.

Over 21 million Americans live with a mood disorder and DBSA’s support groups only reach a small percentage of those affected. We need your help to expand peer support groups, raise awareness and give individuals the power to use their lived experience to bridge the gap of accessible and affordable health care with a gift today.
