“What can I expect at a meeting?”

  • Meetings are typically 8-22 people.
  • Each meeting is led by a member facilitator(s).
  • A facilitator’s role is simply to keep the discussions on track and promote healthy discussion.
  • Facilitator are not professionals, they are members like everyone else, who choose to help DBSA.
  • We start our meetings by going around the room with brief introductions by each member.
  • You may PASS when you turn comes up if you wish. Participation is voluntary and some members choose to just listen.
  • People usually state their 1st name and diagnosis, how they’re doing, and how their week is going.
  • If you have a topic for the group, this is a good time to bring it up.
After the introductions the facilitator will open the meeting up with member topics. Everyone is welcome to contribute. We try to cover as many topics as we can in the short time we have. If you’ve not heard a topic you want to discuss, please bring it up. We hope you enjoy your DBSA experience.

NOTE: Sometimes after meetings, many members go out to eat and hang out at some nearby eatery. New folk are welcome to attend and make new acquaintances. Breaking out of isolation is KEY to recovery. Just hang out after the meeting, as members eventually discuss where we’re going.
