Reviews for Greater Chicago Depression And Bipolar Support Alliance

Rating: 5 stars  

DBSA Chicago Corporate offices house the Advocacy team. This team includes volunteers from Illinois, New Jersey, California, Florida and Tennessee. Headed up by the Vice President of Advocacy these states have leadership teams and advocates for depression and bipolar mental condition issues. Issues include parity for mental health as is with physical health and peer support with peer support specialist which are people who make a difference in the lives of the suffering helping bring them back to functioning individuals.

All of this has been accomplished in the past two years. I am the Chair of the Florida Grassroots Organization and I have known of DBSA Alliance for the past 15 years and have volunteered in this position for the last year. I have seen the difference the "lived experience" has made in my life. I drive an hour and fifteen minutes on Wednesday to my peer support group and have taken the first of a series of peer specialist training.

We are learning together under DBSA Alliance Chicago how a voice can turn into many voices and make a difference on helping to eliminate stigma, change legislation and bring peace and hope to a community of peers. DBSA Alliance far exceeds expectations for a nonprofit organization. Thank you DBSA

DBSA-GC is a terrific all-volunteer charity. Their seven support groups and monthly meetings across the Chicagoland area help thousands each year. And during this time of financial cuts for mental health clinics, they have been instrumental in assisting individuals with mood & bipolar disorders (and their families). Whether it's face-to-face, by phone, their website or email, resources, inspiration and information are available. Please consider supporting them today with a donation.
