Tucson DBSA

Welcome to the Tucson Chapter of 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!

  • Educate chapter participants and the public through programs and resources about mood disorders.
  • Help participants rediscover strength and humor they may have felt they lost.
