DBSA-OC started in 1983 in the form of a small outpatient peer support group hosted by St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, California and initially facilitated by Dr. Himasiri De Silva, a nationally recognized expert on treating bipolar disorder. The original five core members of that group went on to become self-facilitating and formed the Orange County Chapter of the National Manic-Depressive Association with Dr. De Silva as our chief medical advisor. We have developed into the county’s premier information and educational resource for people living with mood disorders. Today we operate as the DBSA Orange County Chapter affiliate of the National DBSA (Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance).
