We need your support to win $100,000!
The Depression and Bipolar Alliance (DBSA) was founded over 30 years ago and works every day to raise awareness of two of today’s most prevalent mental health conditions. Combined, depression and bipolar disorder annually affect more than 20 million Americans, or almost nine percent of our country.
Unlike other national organizations devoted to mental health, DBSA was created for and is led by individuals who live with a mood disorder. Our bylaws stipulate that over half of both the governing board of directors and paid professional staff must have, or have had, depression or bipolar disorder. This first-person lived experience informs everything we do. From the more than 54,000 people meeting in DSBA peer-led support groups across the country to the 3.3 million individuals directly touched by our other programs and online communities, we are creating a world in which every one of us may realize our potential, our strength, and our best selves.
We need your help NOW to fulfill our mission to improve the lives of people living with mood disorders. We have accomplished a lot over the past three decades, but there is so much more to be done—millions of people are still struggling.
Charitable donations are critical to DBSA’s ability to help individuals and families desperately in need of support, resources, education, and hope. Through your generosity, individuals living with a mood disorder can find new strength and comfort by joining our support groups. Others can use our wellness tools to take control of their own life journey. Still others can find inspiration in our insistence to the clinical community that the peer voice be heard.
By donating now, you can become a champion for mental health. Together, we can have a truly lasting impact on the millions seeking wellness and thriving lives.
