In many face-to-face support group meetings, a basket is handed around asking for contributions to help cover expenses. Our virtual basket works the same way - when you register for the meeting, we ask for your financial support to ensure that DRG will continue to provide high quality meetings to help you and others coping with depression.
WHAT THIS MEETING IS ABOUT
These meetings are specifically for individuals who are suffering with Bipolar Disorder. While many Bipolar sufferers deal with mania or hypomanic episodes, most experience depression regularly. The combination of course is quite difficult. In these meetings you will have the opportunity to compare notes with others and get encouragement and ideas that you can use. Register for one of these meetings soon and see how they can help you while you also help others.
Our engaging video-based groups provide self-help education and peer support. Led by a Certified Peer Specialist, these meeting are confidential and anonymous. You choose how involved you would like to be. If you don't feel comfortable talking - it's OK to just listen.
