The 25 million Americans coping with mental and mood disorders (depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc.) and their families need a greater understanding of how these illnesses affect their lives. Support from people who understand the journey is vital. At DBSA support group meetings, people share experiences, personal feelings and strategies for living successfully with mood disorders. These groups are for people diagnosed with a mental or mood disorder or those that suspect they may have one and their family members or close friends.
