Family & Friends Groups have moved to Our New Platform:


To ensure a smooth transition for all groups in the near future, we're piloting the Family & Friends Support Groups on HeyPeers.com!

You can find the same Family & Friends meetings, and more, led by your favorite facilitators at the same times you're used to!

If you are looking for the Family & Friends Support Group, please take a moment to create an account at heypeers.com -- all other groups will continue to be held on Support Groups Central.


Welcome to DBSA's Online Support Groups!

We're glad you found us.

The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) is the leading peer-directed national organization focusing on depression and bipolar disorder. DBSA's peer-based, wellness-oriented, and empowering services and resources are available when people need them, where they need them, and how they need to receive them—online 24/7, in local support groups, in audio and video casts, or in printed materials distributed by DBSA, our chapters, and mental health care facilities across America.

DBSA online support groups provide people living with depression and bipolar disorder a place to share experiences, discuss coping skills, and offer hope to one another. DBSA support groups are peer-led, meaning they are facilitated by someone living with a mood disorder.

Our online support groups are hosted by Support Group Central (SGC), a DBSA approved vendor. You are on SGC’s site now. If you need technical help while using the site, please email SGC at support@supportgroupscentral,com.
