Recent reviews
I am not sure if she has heard this before, but if she wants to lead a group and be successful, she needs to fix her audio problem. It is the third week in a row where you can’t understand her or you are picking up every third word or so and trying to guess the rest.

Jessica is great. The check-in times went smoothly. Jessica encouraged everyone to share if they wished. There were quite a lot of 'first timers' who were struggling with their loved one's new diagnosis' and Jessica was great about welcoming them and giving opportunities for questions and sharing where they were at in coping.

I've been sitting in the waiting room since 6min after the hour, and wasn't let in. I really needed this group today, and although I was late, I was still within the grace period. It's very disappointing to not being allowed into a group that I was registered for

Jessica had a soothing presence and did her best to let everyone share, and keep track of one's topic, though the group was a bit big.

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) is the leading peer-focused national organization focused on depression and bipolar disorder. DBSA's peer-based, wellness-oriented, and empowering services and resources are available when people need them, where they need them, and how they need to receive them. This includes online and local support groups, audio and video casts, and printed materials distributed by DBSA, our chapters, and mental health care facilities across America.

DBSA online support groups provide people living with depression and bipolar disorder a place to share experiences, discuss coping skills, and offer hope to one another. DBSA support groups are peer-led, meaning they are facilitated by someone living with a mood disorder who has been trained and certified to guide others on their journey.

DBSA online support group meetings are peer-based self-help groups. In the DBSA context, a peer is a person with a mood disorder. Another distinction of peer is that we are not professionals - physicians and other mental health providers. We are here to assist, encourage, and enable each other to help ourselves.

Please note that the schedule for DBSA support group meetings on HeyPeers has been updated for 2024. To see all available meetings through DBSA, or to find alternatives if you are waitlisted for a group, visit https://www.dbsalliance.org/support/chapters-and-support-groups/.
