Depression & Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA)
Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) group is 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.
