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.
Our 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
- Female minority Veterans
- Seniors aged 60 and over, offered in English and Spanish
- Friends, family and caregivers caring for loved ones with mood disorders
All DBSA online support groups are free of charge. However, in this time of growing need, we welcome gifts in any amount that will help us open more groups to meet the demand. Click here to give.
