Depression & Bipolar Support

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance

DBSA is a national, patient directed, not-for-profit organization that fosters an environment of understanding about the impact and management of these life-threatening illnesses.
Our Ripon DBSA Chapter is a faith-based support group for family, friends, and those who suffer with depression or bipolar disorders.
All faiths are welcome. We offer discussion support sessions, educational presentations, library resources, and caring company.  

Our Purpose

Our DBSA Chapter exists to improve the lives of consumers, families, and friends by offering a confidential and supportive setting where one can find comfort and direction and where one can make a difference in the lives of others. We are focused on mutual aid and strategies for living the fullest lives possible. Participants continuously seek to provide hope, reassurance, and encouragement.
