The National Capitol Area Chapter Bethesda group of Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) meets at 7:00 PM on alternate Wednesdays. This peer support group has been active since 1982. Membership is open to anyone who has a diagnosis of depression or bipolar disorder. Please see Pages section for more details. There is no charge to join the group or attend the meetings. Please note that if you arrive after 7:30 you should go to the discussion group (if we have split up for that night) because you will not be able to share in the circle as a curtesy to other members.
Weather policy: DBSA Montgomery County does not meet if Montgomery County public schools are closed due to weather.
We are now a closed group requiring approval to join. This is to ensure privacy and security of members. Approval checking will be done once a week, so don't worry if you don't get an immediate approval. :)
