We've been there.    

We can help.

DBSA of Greater Indianapolis is a peer support group for those living with depression or bipolar disorder and their friends and families.  The peer-led and wellness-centered approach means that DBSA groups are not led by a therapist or mental health worker.  Instead, all the support and knowledge comes from others just like you--people who have life experience handling the kind of situation you are dealing with right now.

The group meets Mondays from 7:30pm-9pm at Pleasantview Lutheran Church, 801 West 73rd Street.  For a map and contact information, see the "Contact us" page.  There is no charge to attend.
