OUR MISSION: To provide hope, support, and education to improve the lives of people who have mood disorders and their family and friends.
To be a facilitator, you must have depression or bipolar disorder yourself!!
DBSA/We provide support groups for people with depression or bipolar disorder, their families and friends.
DBSA's Mood Disorders Support Group provides social connection, emotional support and shares strategies for dealing with varied life issues .
Our Family and Friends Support Group provides shared experience and strategies for self-care under stress while supporting people with mood disorders. The effect of regular attendance is positive to its members. Group discussion is led by a facilitator with DBSA training.
Facilitator training is given in a small group by a DBSA support group facilitator with 20 years of experience. The training consists of one 2-hour session. However the trainer/facilitator will be available for assistance and guidance through your first year as needed as you build your group.
Remember! To be a DBSA facilitator you must have a mood disorder yourself!
he position of facilitator requires: providing consistent leadership, respect for persons working towards recovery, empathy. This work can provide great personal rewards.
