About

Biography
In response to a critical need expressed by individuals living with the illnesses of depression and bipolar disorder, a group of dedicated individuals formed the Depressive Manic Disorder Association (DMDA) Greater Houston in 1979. The Houston chapter joined the national organization in 1989. During the first 20 years of the organizations existence, volunteers took leadership positions to create DMDA Greater Houstons first board of directors. In 2003, DMDA Greater Houston changed its name to Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Houston (DBSA). Led by Gary Levering, a dedicated and enthusiastic participant, DBSA formed its own 501(c) (3) corporation. Mr. Levering utilized his personal experience and strong community connections to recruit and build the initial DBSA board of directors, and the Board is still strong and active today. DBSA free support groups help individuals, family members and friends understand these two difficult, yet treatable, mental disorders. In addition, DBSA works to educate the public about depression and bipolar disorders, confront social stigma and advocate for the rights of people living with mental disorders. Our free support groups are led by trained, dedicated and passionate facilitators. Our groups provide a compassionate environment consisting of peers who accept and understand each other. This sense of community and empathy gives participants encouragement to live more meaningful and healthy lives. Thanks to contributions from individual and foundations, DBSA is able to provide free support groups to individuals living with depression and bipolar disorder, as well as loved ones who are helping with their journey of wellness.
