New Depression/Bipolar support group for students and employees
A support group for people with depression/bipolar disorder is being started on campus. It will be associated with the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) of Brown County. DBSA support groups are peer led and provide the kind of sharing and caring that experts say is crucial for a lifetime of wellness. Such interaction:
• Allows you to reach out to others and benefit from the experience of those who have “been there.”
• Motivates you to follow your treatment plan.
• Helps you understand that a mood disorder does not define who you are.
• Helps you rediscover strengths and humor you may have thought you had lost.
• Provides a forum for mutual acceptance, understanding and self-discovery.
Meetings will be weekly on Thursdays at 6 p.m. in MAC 301 (the Vista conference room) starting this Thursday (Feb. 16). For additional information contact Greg Smith at the Counseling and Health Center, 465-2380.
