Depression and Bipolar Support Groups, Houston, TXI can’t say enough about the importance of support systems in our lives. Whether your are a new mother and connecting with other new moms online, parenting a child diagnosed with a disability seeking resources, or on the road to recovering from addiction and attending regular support groups, connecting with others is vital to your success in overcoming the challenges of your circumstance.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jami Edwards last week at Kingwood Pines Hospital for a continuing education hour on nutrition and mental health, who works with DBSA, Depression and Bipoar Support Alliance. This organization offers free support groups in and around the Houston, Texas area.

She provided me this list (below) of Open Support Groups for individuals and families dealing with Depression and Bipolar Disorder. I encourage you the check their website regularly for an updated list as well.

  1. DBSA only serves individuals 18 & over – at least the one here in Kingwood. My daughter is just about to turn 13 and needs a support group to go to. She has been inpatient twice and was receiving outpatient intensive therapy for about 2 months for her depression and anxiety. Her last day was last Tuesday and she is desperately wanting to join a support group, but finding one that accommodates her age group is proving to be tough. I found one that helps teens, but they are reluctant to take her because she is so young and the kids they deal with have or have had substance and/or alcohol abuse issues. I agree, that isn’t right for her. Any help would be appreciated.
