Who We Are

We are a Chapter of the National Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance serving the Greater San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys.

What We Are

We are a caring group of intelligent and talented individuals (peers) who hold open, free support group meeting and offer a variety of written information. Our focus is on self-help which is offered in a safe, accepting, nonjudgmental and confidential peer to peer environment.

What We Are Not

We are not a substitute for therapy or professional treatment, we are not a place to receive a diagnosis or a 12 step program.

Why Do We Meet?

We meet to improve the lives of people living with mood disorders such as clinical depression, anxiety and bipolar disorders and to support each other in our quest toward recovery and managing our disorders.

How Much Does It Cost?

Meetings are FREE and open to those affected with depression, bipolar and anxiety disorders. Friends and family are always welcome.

DBSA Northridge Is Peer Run and Peer Supported. It is  only through the generosity of your donations that allow us to continue to reach those struggling with depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder providing educational material and support group meetings. Please help support DBSA Northridge.
