What we're about

DBSA San Diego is a network of free peer-led support groups for people with any type of mental health challenge and their family & friends. In addition to free support groups, we have low cost social events, lectures, art nights, picnics, bonfires, and other events. Come join us for a meeting to get support for yourself or to learn more about supporting a friend or loved one. :) No reservations or paperwork required. Just show up!

*Most people don't RSVP here so even if it looks like no one's coming there will still be group and there will be people.*

**Due to COVID-19, most of our groups have moved online or are being offered by telephone. The calendar on this Meetup group has the most up to date listing of activities offered by DBSA San Diego right now. Our info line is also still being answered. 858-444-6776.**

When we are meeting in-person and NOT under COVID-19 restrictions, the following links are accurate:

IN-PERSON Family & Friends Support Group - North County

Needs a location

In-person Family & Friends support groups will resume July 28th in North County!
Every 2nd & 4th Wednesday we have a specialty group for family & friends of people with mental health challenges. We realize you have unique issues and this is a place for you to get to talk about your experience and share tips and tricks. Everyone is welcome to share a topic related to your mental health or your loved one and get feedback. If you prefer, you may just listen and give feedback to others. This is one of two specialty family & friends groups offered in the county. It is small and offers ample time to share your experience and resources.

This meeting is for family and friends of those with mental health challenges, NOT patients/consumers.
This meeting is held in a church but is NOT faith-based.
