Online Support Groups for You

DBSA online support groups give people living with depression and bipolar disorder a safe, welcoming place to share experiences, discuss coping skills, and offer each other hope. With the support of generous donors and friends, we are rapidly adding more groups to meet the urgent need for online support.

Online Support Group Information

All DBSA online support groups are free of charge. Online support groups are led by peers, which means that the person guiding the meeting knows firsthand what it’s like to live with a mood disorder.

In addition to our general support groups, we offer specialized groups for:

  • Young adults
  • Military Veterans from all branches of the service
  • Black community
  • Rural community
  • DBSA friends, family, and caregivers supporting loved ones with mood disorders
  • People with co-occurring diagnoses of substance use and a mood disorder
  • People with tardive dyskinesia or other movement conditions and a mood disorder


HeyPeers Platform

Our national online support groups are hosted by HeyPeers, a DBSA vendor. Upon registration, you will receive an email from them to assist you with managing your account.
