***Beginning October 2020, DBSA Southern Nevada will be charging a nominal amount for dues. We will be charging $1.50/month, and request that a payment of $18.00 be made to cover a year's membership, by October 31st. Attendees who join the group in October or later will be given a free month to determine whether they want to pay and join as a member. For more information on dues, what they pay for, and how to pay, please join the MeWe group and read the Posts. Thank you!
Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Southern Nevada is canceling all support groups until further notice. We understand this is a difficult time, especially for those suffering from anxiety. The Board has decided that we must cancel the support groups to help curb the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to be there for those suffering from Bipolar Disorder and Depression.
We have set up a MeWe group that can be accessed via Android, Apple, and desktop.
This online group will allow us to meet during our regular scheduled group times as well as maintain an open group chat.
In an effort to meet the growing need for support in our community we have created an additional MEWE chat group for family and friend support persons. Meetings for this chat group will take place at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays!
Please join the online group if you need support or can be of support to others!
The national DBSA online support groups can be found at dbsalliance.org

Support groups bring people together who understand the up, downs and frustrations of depression or bipolar disorder. DBSA support groups are a safe confidential place to talk about and overcome the day-to-day and long-term challenges of mood disorders.
Mood disorders are physical illnesses that affect the brain. Their exact cause is not known, but it is known that an imbalance in brain chemicals plays a role. These illnesses also have a genetic component, meaning they can run in families. They are not your fault, and they are nothing to be ashamed of. Having a mood disorder does not mean you can't lead a normal life.
DBSA Southern Nevada does not dispense medical advice; if you have a medical concern, please contact a qualified mental health professional. We cannot take responsibility for information that you obtain from links on our site.
Support is essential to recovery. One of the most helpful things one person can say to (or hear from) another is “I’ve been there.” Depression and Bipolar Disorder can be isolating illnesses, but DBSA has many ways to help connect you with others who have been there as well.
