Depression & Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA)
Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) Breakthrough hosts a Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) group for individuals who are struggling with depression or bipolar disorders. DBSA is a place where these people and those who care about them can share experiences, discuss coping skills and offer hope to one another.
Why attend a DBSA meeting? DBSA provides the kind of caring and assistance that is important to lasting recovery. DBSA support group participants say that their DBSA groups:
- Provide a safe and welcoming forum for mutual acceptance, understanding, and self-discovery.
- Give an opportunity to reach out to others and benefit from the experience of those who have "been there".
- Helps with motivation to follow their treatment plans.
- Increased understanding that mood disorders do not define who we are.
- Help people rediscover personal strengths and brings back a sense of humor.
- Gives hope that overcomes depression.
DBSA meets Thursday nights, 6:30 pm to around 8:00 pm, at the RiverWalk Church of Christ, located at 225 N. Waco in Wichita. You do not need to be a member of Breakthrough to participate in DBSA.
