I was attending a community luncheon this past year and sat next to a woman I did not know. I introduced myself and we exchanged information about ourselves. I said I was on the board of DBSA. She exclaimed, "You all at DBSA saived my daughter's life!" If that wasn't a testament to t he power of DBSA support groups, I don't know what is. These groups can make such a difference in the lives of persons struggling with depression of bipolar disorder. I am t hankful to be a part of the solution to those recovering from these illnesses.

With every support meeting, DBSA-Houston changes lives. It provides a safe and nurturing group so that those struggling with depression and/or bipolar get the help and information they need, but most importantly, DBSA helps them realize that they are not alone.
