No need to register for each Tyesday.</p><p>DBSA-California Support Groups are offered for free and provide a safe, confidential space where people from all walks of life connect with peers to share their stories, experiences, and lives in a way that helps reduce isolation and loneliness. When we’re struggling or in a crisis, we often feel that we’re alone. Support groups can connect us with peers who understand us, have similar lived experiences, and can help us get through. Our support groups are led by peers we highly train as facilitators, so they have an intimate comprehension of the challenges firsthand and serve as a beacon of hope to others.</p><p>Who Should Join Groups? </p><p>Battling mental health alone is difficult for most individuals who suffer from Depression and Bipolar. It can seem impossible to cope, heal, or think about recovery. We understand the struggle, we’ve been there, we can help! By attending weekly discussion groups, you will be empowered with education, resources, emotional support, and guidance to set you up on the path to recovery. There is no shame in admitting that sometimes we need help, it’s tough enough carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders, let DBSA CA Support Groups lighten the load for you. </p><p>Topics of Discussion </p><ul><li> Self-esteem/self-talk (positive/negative)</li><li> Planning for the future</li><li> Obligations (financial/relationships-family/work)</li><li> Medications</li><li> Initial steps (after an episode)</li><li> Hospitalization (in-patient/outpatient)</li><li> Insurance (medical/disability)</li><li> Sleep patterns</li><li> Triggers</li><li> Dual diagnosis &amp; Addiction (drugs &amp; alcohol) </li><li> Finding a doctor/therapist</li><li> Self-discipline, daily maintenance/routine</li></ul><ul><li> Proper self-care, motivation/lack of motivation</li><li> Spending money</li><li> Exercise/fitness (physical activity)</li><li> Setting goals and meeting deadlines</li><li> Setting boundaries</li><li> Weight loss/gain/appetite</li><li> Test of faith (spiritual life)</li><li> Self Education</li><li> Socializing</li></ul><p>COME JOIN US!</p></div></div>
