Support Groups | Depression Center | Michigan Medicine
Starting in as a small support group for those coping with mental health symptoms, this group known as "Carl Brown's Mad Dog Army" met weekly at a local library. Eventually, the group sought a charter with the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance DBSA , a nonprofit, peer-directed organization bringing together people with depression and bipolar disorder for support and networking. We provide current, understandable information about depression and bipolar disorder and empowering tools focused on an integrated approach to wellness. DBSA Louisville has been providing services to the Kentuckiana area for over 15 years, and strives to find new ways to reach, teach and support our community. Anyone can benefit from attending one of our support groups, whether you are not feeling well and suspect you may have an underlying mental health condition, you have been diagnosed, or are a friend or family member of someone who has been diagnosed. Our support groups give you the opportunity to reach out to others and benefit from the experience of those who have been there. We strive to motivate you to follow your treatment plans and help you understand that a mood disorder does not define who you are.
