- DBSA Longs Peak
We are a small, friendly support group for those struggling with depression and bipolar
illnesses. We meet weekly on Wednesdays at 6pm - 8pm, alternating between Longmont and
Firestone, as we have members from both areas. The current schedule is always posted at
dbsalongspeak.org under "Events".
Scroll past the special events to see the calendar.
Family members are welcome, as the group provides an opportunity for them
to learn about these illnesses from people who deal with them every day. If you have just
been diagnosed, or are looking for a local group after moving to the area, please
check us out. You don't have to go through this alone.
