Being diagnosed and living with a mood disorder can seem overwhelming at times. Here at the Greater Milwaukee Chapter of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) our mission is to provide hope, help, and support to improve the lives of people living with mood disorders.
The DBSA Greater Milwaukee support group is a gathering of peers who assist, encourage and enable each other in helping themselves. Each participant follows their own unique path to wellness and chooses to make that journey in the company of others headed in the same direction. Our meetings are designed to give everyone an opportunity to participate as they are comfortable.
Confidentiality is one of the most important aspects of our support group. No one may ever reveal information about the people attending the group or what is said during the meeting. This means that “What is said here, stays here.”
Our support group meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month, with holidays excluded. It is free of charge and open to adults, 18 years of age and older. In the event of inclement weather, we will not hold meetings on days that Milwaukee Public Schools are closed.
