- The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance*, DBSA, has formed a peer support group composed of family members and friends of persons with depression or bipolar disorder.
These group members, volunteers, meet together to share mutual feelings, experiences and strategies to reduce stress and promote self-care for themselves and each other. This is an important learning process for family members and friends in order to sustain their own physical and mental health. Attendees also learn about mood disorders and how to better support their loved one.
Family members and close friends can intensely feel the stress of coping with another person's depression or bipolar disorder. Group attendance is not therapy but can have a therapeutic effect on its members.
Group attendance is free and open to all 18 years old and above.
This group meets twice monthly in North Baltimore City. For more details, reach out to contact person.
