DBSAI Is Improving Lives
Each year, DBSAI reaches people to give them the message that there is help and hope; and that no one with these illnesses needs to feel alone. Depression and bipolar disorder are real, treatable illnesses.
No matter how people find support from DBSA---whether it’s through our peer-led support groups, through the many brochures that we distribute each year, or through our outreach and training programs---we are proud that our message of hope, help and recovery is being heard. And that our mission, to improve the lives of people living with mood disorders, is being fulfilled.
Our Mission: To educate patients, families, professionals and the public concerning the nature of depressive and manic-depressive illness as a medical disease; to foster self-help for patients and families; to eliminate discrimination and stigma; to improve access to care; and to advocate for research toward the elimination of these illnesses.
