Isolation is the leading predictor of suicidal behavior which includes suicidal ideation, and/or suicide attempts.
Peer support groups like DBSA have proven effective in reducing the feeling of isolation and aids in the recovery of mental health disorders.
There are over 1 million reported suicide attempts each year in the U.S. alone. Virtually all survivors report that they didn't want to die they just wanted to get rid of the pain.
Because of the stigma that still exists concerning mental illness, many people who need help do not seek it. ... So they try to live their lives with untreated mental disorders, like depression. Unfortunately, untreated mental disorders can lead to death. More Suicide Facts

   

Who We Are

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

What We Are

We are a caring group of very 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 Major Depression Disorder (MDD), General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Seasonal Effective Disorder (SAD) and Bipolar Disorder (BD) and to support each other in our quest toward recovery and managing these 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.

  

?Sometimes we think that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of feeling unwanted, unloved, uncared for and alone is the greatest of all poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty."
