DBSA Military Veterans


The participants in this group are military vets who are diagnosed with a mood disorder or believe they may have a mood disorder. Led by military veteran group leaders, the intention of this group is to create a safe space for sharing military veteran stories, questions and concerns - for this reason, individuals who are not military veterans may NOT attend.

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance

The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) is the leading peer-directed national organization focusing on depression and bipolar disorder. DBSA's peer-based, wellness-oriented, and empowering services and resources are available when people need them, where they need them, and how they need to receive them. This includes online 24/7, in local support groups, in audio and video casts, or in printed materials distributed by DBSA, our chapters, and mental health care facilities across America.

DBSA online support groups provide people living with depression and bipolar disorder a place to share experiences, discuss coping skills, and offer hope to one another. DBSA support groups are peer-led, meaning they are facilitated by someone living with a mood disorder who has been trained and certified to guide others on their journey.

DBSA online support group meetings are peer-based, self-help groups. In the DBSA context, a peer is a person with a mood disorder. Another distinction of peer is that we are not professionals — physicians and other mental health providers. We are here to assist, encourage, and enable each other to help ourselves.
