OUR MISSION: DBSA provides hope, help, support, and education to improve the lives of people who have mood disorders and their family and friends.
DBSA Roland Park is a local affiliate of The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, a national non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of people with mood disorders. We provide peer support groups for people with depression and bipolar disorder as well as their families and friends.
DBSA Roland Park's People with Mood Disorders Support Group provides social connection, emotional support and shares strategies for dealing with a variety of life issues while dealing with mood disorders for its members.
DBSA's Family and Friends Peer Support Group provides shared experience among its members and strategies for self-care while coping with the stress of supporting people with mood disorders. Attendance at the group is free. This is not a therapy group but the effect of regular attendance is therapeutic to its members. Group discussion is led by a peer facilitator with basic (non-professional) DBSA training.
DBSA Roland Park also periodically presents educational speaking events open to the public and participates in community health fairs . DBSA welcomes new members.
