The DBSA GREATER BALTIMORE AREA Chapter is a local affiliate of the national DBSA. Our mission is to improve the lives of people with mood disorders, depression and bipolar disorder, and of their families and friends. We currently provide six support groups in the Greater Baltimore area. At these regularly scheduled meetings, participants share experiences and challenges that we meet related to our mood disorders. Other group members may ask a clarifying question or give brief feedback. Generally each attendee has an opportunity to speak or may choose to simply listen. A DBSA- trained facilitator following DBSA guidelines moderates each meeting. These facilitators must have first hand experience as a person with a mood disorder or as a family member.
Our goal is to provide hope, help, education and resources related to living well, even thriving, while living daily with a mood disorder.
Our group lends a sense of community and we learn we still have the creativity and humor we think we may have lost.
