About Us

The Facing Us Clubhouse is a program brought to you by The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA).

DBSA is the leading patient-directed national organization focusing on the most prevalent mental illnesses, depression and bipolar disorder. The organization fosters an environment of understanding about the impact and management of these life- threatening illnesses by providing up-to-date, scientifically-based tools and information written in language the general public can understand. DBSA supports research to promote more timely diagnosis, develop more effective and tolerable treatments and discover a cure. The organization works to ensure that people living with mood disorders are treated equitably. DBSA was founded in 1985 as a not-for- profit 501(c)(3) organization.

Our Mission

To provide hope, help and support to improve the lives of people living with depression or bipolar disorder. DBSA pursues and accomplishes this mission through peer-based, recovery-oriented empowering services and resources when, where and how they want them.

Tip Prescribing Psychologists

In my DBSA group, I often hear people bemoaning the fact that they have to see a psychiatrist (for 10 minutes) for their meds; and they have to see a separate therapist for talk therapy. I see a neuropsychologist licensed to prescribe meds. Because of his background, he understands how my medical illnesses intersect my mental illnesses, and can treat me accordingly, including my meds. I highly recommend this if you can find it!
