ORGANIZATION SUMMARY

The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) is the leading peer-focused mental health organization whose mission is to "provide hope, help, support, and education to improve the lives of people living with mood disorders." At the national level, DBSA supports more than 400 support groups and approximately 80 local affiliate chapters. Each year, DBSA reaches more than 1.8 million individuals with support, educational resources, and tools to help individuals living with mood disorders lead productive and fulfilling lives. Additionally, through our advocacy efforts, we amplify peers' voices and work toward systemic change in the delivery of mental health care.

DBSA offers peer-based, wellness-oriented support, empowering services, and resources available when people need them, where they need them, and how they need them. DBSA is available online 24/7 and in local support groups, audio and video casts, printed materials, our chapters, and mental health care facilities across America.

DBSA is led by and created for individuals living with a mood disorder, and that experience informs everything that we do.
