About this meeting
Tardive Dyskinesia is a movement condition that sometimes results with long-term use of certain medications. DBSA has a new support group made possible by Neurocrine Biosciences and Teva Pharmaceuticals specifically for those living with a mood disorder and a movement condition resulting from medication. If you live with both of these, this group is for you

About the host
I have facilitated DBSA support groups since 2007. I have been married for 39 years and have two adult children and two grandchildren. I have lived with bipolar and PTSD for about 65 years. I didn't learn about TD until several years after the symptoms started. I am a Vietnam Combat Veteran and have been a real estate broker since 1974.

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) is the leading peer-focused national organization focused 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 and local support groups, audio and video casts, and 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.

Please note that the schedule for DBSA support group meetings on HeyPeers has been updated for 2024. To see all available meetings through DBSA, or to find alternatives if you are waitlisted for a group, visit https://www.dbsalliance.org/support/chapters-and-support-groups/.
