Peer Support

“Knowing that I wasn’t going through this alone . . . that was my first break through.” –DBSA support group participant

Support is essential to recovery. One of the most helpful things one person can say to (or hear from) another is “I’ve been there.” Depression and bipolar disorder can be isolating illnesses, but DBSA has many ways to help connect you with others who have been there as well.
