What we're about

The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance-Greater Chicago, a non-profit self help group of lay persons, endeavors to help people whose lives are affected by mood disorders to better their lives: By offering support groups for members, families and friends and by educating them. By counteracting the isolation caused by such illness, providing a sense of community, sharing the experience of the illness and its management attendees can work at restoring self-esteem. Part of our mission is to help empower members to live as responsibly, as fulfilled, and with as much enjoyment as possible. The support groups and educational meetings are FREE OF CHARGE but donations are always welcome!
