Mission Statement:

DBSA ABQ Metro, an independent chapter of the Depression/Bipolar Support Alliance, is dedicated to helping the mood disordered community through peer-run support groups and informational outreach programs. We promote the acceptance of mood disordered individuals and fight the pervasive stigma of mental illness.

Primary Programs:

Every week, we hold a free peer-run support group for mood-disordered individuals. If there are enough attendees, we may split into a depression support circle and a bipolar support circle in different rooms. Friends and family are welcome to attend and learn, and are invited to split off into their own peer-led support circle for support on coping with the challenges of being friends or family of a mood-disordered individual.

Other Programs:

We have a Toastmasters-trained public speaker who can present informational speeches to businesses, churches, community groups, other nonprofits, etc. We have informational pamphlets and magazines dealing with a number of common but scary scenarios such as expressions of suicidal ideation or fixation, and we bring this information to health fairs and mental illness awareness events.
