Hear What Your Peers Have to Say about DBSA Conferences

Each year, we hear from conference attendees that one of the best things about our conferences is the opportunity to connect with others, to confirm and realize that they are not alone and to learn from each other how to develop their own path to recovery. Listen to what attendees at our 2006 had to say about last year’s conference.

Written Testimonials

“Thank you, thank you! It is giving me hope to see that I am not ALONE!”

“Thank you! I don’t feel so alone now. I have made friends that are dealing with the same issues as me (my children have bipolar/depression). I feel more empowered to help them and to help others.”

“The conference really helped my mom understand what I have been going through and the challenges I face. Before the conference, she was not supportive of my illness at all."

“I have attended many conferences, and this was the best! I felt cared for, the information was interesting and applicable, and the support and networking were unbelievable to me as a parent and provider. Thank you!”

“My experience in attending the past conferences has been awesome! I've always come away with learning so much more than I thought possible. The people that I've met and stayed in contact with have helped me learn more and more each day. I'm very glad to have started attending the DBSA conferences.”

“Very uplifting and motivational. Got great ideas and met some fantastic peers. The DBSA staff is always so organized and so friendly and helpful.”

“I enjoyed the whole conference and was absolutely amazed when the DBSA Board of Directors introduced themselves and practically all of them stated having mental illnesses like myself. The conference offered everything I had hoped for and more with the breakout sessions, the keynote speakers and meeting great people. I loved it.”

“Very powerful, educational and healing.”
