Mission Statement

DBSA provides hope, help, support, and education to improve the lives of people who have mood disorders.

Description

The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) is the leading peer-directed national organization focusing on the two most prevalent mental health conditions, depression and bipolar disorder, which affect more than 21 million Americans, account for 90% of the nation’s suicides every year, and cost $23 billion in lost workdays and other workplace losses.

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-online 24/7, in in-person support groups, in audio and video casts, or in printed materials distributed by DBSA, our chapters, and mental health care facilities throughout Santa Clara county and nationwide.

Through our extensive online and print resources and weekly support groups, DBSA reaches Santa
Clara county residents with in-person and online peer support; current, readily understandable information about depression and bipolar disorder; and empowering tools focused on an integrated approach to wellness.
