DBSA Greater Milwaukee Chapter is an independent affiliate of the national Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA).
We are a non-profit peer-run support group for individuals and family members affected by a diagnosed mood disorder (depression and bipolar disorder). This group was created to assist, encourage, and enable each other to help ourselves. DBSA Milwaukee aims to provide hope, self-empowerment, mutual support and promote wellness in the lives of adults living with a mood disorder and in the lives of their loved ones.
As a peer-run group, we are not professionals and strongly believe our members should see a professional for proper treatment and diagnosis.
Confidentiality is one of the most important aspects of our support group. What is said here, stays here. All DBSA support group meetings are facilitated by volunteers and are free of charge.
Educational presentations and information about social programs are occasionally offered in addition to our support groups. More information can be found on Facebook, Meetup, or the Events page of this website.
