Weekly Meetings
     We have meetings 2 nights a week, they are all free of charge and we welcome family and friends that support those with a mood disorder.
 
Thursday night from 6:00-7:30pm.
We meet at St Phillips in the Hills Episcopal Church on the corner of Campbell Ave. at River Rd. (north-east corner--click for map). Drive in on first Campbell entrance, and within a 100 feet there is handicapped parking for about 8 cars. Keep going in for ample regular parking.  We are in the La Parroquia bldg, the south-east most building  (closest to River Rd.).  Walk in and it's the room to the right/south, called Palo Verde (click for a map of the church grounds).

Sunday night from 6:00-7:30pm at University Medical Center
. 1501 N. Campbell.  (click here for map).  Parking is free on Sunday nights. Come in through the main entrance at the hospital, go past the elevators into the cafeteria.  On the far left wall are four conference rooms.  We meet in the last two.

PLEASE NOTE: No admittance 10 minutes after meeting start times.

 People always ask us, "What can I expect at a meeting?  How many people attend?". Well, our meetings typically range from 12 to 22 people.  We start our meetings with brief introductions.  The introductions center around what you need from the Group.  After that, it is an open discussion addressing as many topics as we can in the time we have.  Each meeting is led by a facilitator (or facilitators).  Their role is to just keep the discussions on track and promote healthy discussion.  All participation is voluntary and some visiting members choose to just listen their first time.  It is all up to you! For a more detailed description of our support group meetings, please see our chapter's  meeting guidelines and this helpful page on the DBSA National web site.  Hope to see you there!!!

Welcome to the Tucson Chapter of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance!

  Our chapter meets to provide peer support for those with mood disorders.  Our meetings are free of charge and are open to anyone.  We meet every Thursday and Sunday night!  We welcome not only those with mood disorders, but their friends and/or family as well.  We offer a safe place to get emotional support, build self-esteem and become more educated about our disorders. Hopefully you will find the resources that you are looking for here.  If you don't see it, don't be afraid to ask one of us!!!
