(1) Community –
DBSA creates the opportunity for meaningful lives by compassionately engaging with individuals and providing peer-led support groups, educational materials, and wellness tools that focus on resiliency, achievement, creativity, and connection.
(2) Inspiration –
DBSA celebrates peers’ accomplishments, including those of the many talented, successful individuals recognized by the public for their contributions to the world.
(3) Wisdom –
DBSA advances learning through research and experience while promoting a transformative understanding of mental health through wide, timely dissemination of information about the latest treatments, wellness practices, and lived experiences.
(4) Responsibility –
DBSA advocates for the right of peers to choose their own paths to mental, emotional, and physical wellness while promoting structures and practices that advance whole health and accessible care for everyone.
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.
