The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) is a nationwide peer-run organization focusing on depression and bipolar disorder.The support group is intended as an informal forum for education, support and socialization among patients diagnosed with depression, bipolar disorders or related mood disorders; and for their families and friends, and others interested in learning about the illness and offering support.
DBSA welcomes people with other mood disorders such as OCD, anxiety, ADHD, and schizoaffective disorder.

What makes DBSA unique is that it is led by individuals living with a mood disorder and those supporting them. DBSA groups are strictly peer-led groups, with no professional involvement for the regular group meetings. The facilitators are trained support group facilitators. Participation in such groups has been proven to assist in coping with and recovering from mood disorders.
