DBSA-Boston (formerly known as MDDA-Boston) is a resource for people with affective disorders, and their families and friends. Affective disorders such as bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness) and clinical depression affect millions of people every year. Coping with these disorders is difficult enough, but coping alone can be even tougher.
DBSA-Boston (Depression Bipolar Support Alliance of Boston) is a non-profit, self-help organization run by and for people with affective disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder. DBSA members come together to share support and information with others in similar situations.
DBSA-Boston meets every Wednesday from 7:00 to 9:00pm at McLean Hospital (in Belmont, Massachusetts) in the deMarneffe Building cafeteria. Additionally, there are drop-in groups on Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 1:30pm to 3:30pm in room 132 in the deMarneffe Building cafeteria.
