Hope. Support. Education.
The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance - Greater Chicago (DBSA-GC) is a self-help organization offering support and education to those with mood disorders, their families, and friends. We are a 501(c)(3) chapter of DBSA, a national organization, with hundreds of affiliates across the US, Canada, and now, Mexico, Brazil, China, and Singapore. DBSA-GC is also the founding chapter of what became DMDA and then later renamed DBSA.
